Department Vision and Mission Statement

Mathematics and science courses comprise part of the core of each Wentworth student’s college program. Our departmental offerings are designed to help facilitate student success across all programs at the Institute.

Academic Day Programs

Bachelor of Science - Engineering Technology
Engineering Technology (BEN)
Leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree

Engineering Technology provides the student with the opportunity to explore various technology disciplines while participating in a rigorous academic regimen. In addition to specified requirements (during the first two years of study) in mathematics, English, computer science, physics, chemistry, and humanities/social sciences, students select technical courses based on areas of interest. These selections are guided by specially assigned academic advisors. Following successful completion of prescribed core and technical electives during the freshman and sophomore years, students may continue in Engineering Technology or transfer at any time to a different major, which may result in additional time to complete the new degree requirements. Those choosing to continue with Engineering Technology (BEN) follow a program of study designed to meet individual interests and abilities in an area of science, engineering, or technology but also encompass educational objectives spanning several disciplines.

Engineering Technology (BEN) is a cooperative education program which provides students with the opportunity to take part in a paid work experience in industry for a minimum of two non-consecutive semesters. Employment possibilities after graduation depend upon the student’s choice of electives and overall performance in the program. It is possible for students to pursue graduate degrees in engineering, architecture, design, business, law, and public administration upon receipt of their baccalaureate.
