Electromechanical Engineering (BELM)
Mission of the Program
The mission of this interdisciplinary electrical and mechanical program is to prepare students to become practicing engineers who will become innovative problem solvers in industry, government, and academia.
The Electromechanical Engineering (BELM) program is a five-year engineering program with a dynamic interdisciplinary character and unique approach to learning. Grounded in a solid foundation of mathematics, science, and the humanities and social sciences, this program incorporates all the essential elements of an electrical and mechanical engineering curriculum. This program features engineering design courses throughout its five-year study, extensive use of computers to solve engineering problems, and a faculty committee management structure that responds quickly to industrial changes and the academic needs of students. Wentworth stresses the importance of hands-on experience, which means BELM students spend a great deal of time working in our state-of-the-art laboratories. Computers and microprocessors are a large part of the program; students use computers and test equipment extensively to verify and develop principles of engineering in diverse areas such as mechanics of materials, embedded microcontroller systems, analog and digital circuit design, thermodynamics, vibrations, materials science, feedback controls, and machine design.
