Focused Academics:

An exceptional education based in EPIC Learning

For many schools, classroom-based curricula form the core of the learning program. At Wentworth, academics serve as a foundation—an exceptionally sturdy foundation—intended to be built upon by other learning opportunities, such as labs and co-op experiences. Honoring our tradition of out-of-classroom learning, all undergraduate students are required to spend a minimum of two semesters in a co-op program, regardless of the college or their major. This multifaceted academic approach stems from our commitment to the tenets of EPIC Learning (Externally collaborative, Project-based, Interdisciplinary Culture).

EPIC Learning provides an educational experience that closely mirrors the environments and challenges found in real workplaces—the pace, the unpredictability, and the need for creative problem-solving and collaboration. Through hands-on, experiential learning activities, students put theory into practice and gain competence and confidence as they engage in trial-and-error exercises in real-world situations. They emerge with a newfound understanding of their own abilities and the impact they can make in the world.

Our broad academic offerings are organized across three colleges:

DO. LEARN. SUCCEED.

It’s hard to boil down the diverse and dynamic Wentworth experience to just three words or ideas, but this comes close. At Wentworth you will DO by building prototypes, collaborating with peers, and gaining hands-on experience through co-ops. You will LEARN through curricular and extracurricular courses and activities. And you will SUCCEED at school and in your career by taking chances, applying your skills and knowledge, and staying true to your commitment to making a difference in the world.

Do. Learn. Succeed. It’s what makes Wentworth unique and what will distinguish you from the competition when you graduate.

College of Architecture, Design and Construction Management

Majors

  • Architecture
  • Construction Management
  • Industrial Design
  • Interior Design

What a structure looks like, what materials it’s composed of, and how to get it built form the basis for the range of majors offered by the College of Architecture, Design and Construction Management. Our experienced faculty impress upon our students that buildings represent far more than passive spaces for people to move around in; rather, the built environment has a significant impact on how people live, work, play, and feel. Responsible architects, designers, and construction managers have a profound impact on people’s lives and the community in which the building stands—they solve problems for society and improve the quality and sustainability of our world.
