Program: BS in Building Construction Management
Employer: Four Seasons Property Maintenance
Job Title: Carpenter
Resides: Turners Falls, MA
Why did you decide to return to school?
I am looking to climb the career ladder in the construction industry and I thought it would be beneficial to earn a degree in the field. Through the degree I have been able to broaden my horizons and come closer to my goal of working as a field engineer or in upper management for a large construction firm.
What about Wentworth specifically did you find appealing?
Friends and colleagues in the field recommended that I look into Wentworth. As I did more research not only did I learn that Wentworth carries a strong name in the construction industry, but the convenience of the program was also attractive since I am able to keep working full-time while taking evening and hybrid courses.
What is one the features you enjoy most in the program?
I really like the online discussions through Blackboard for those courses that are offered in a hybrid format. It seems to me that students are more likely to get involved online as opposed to in a face-to-face format. Through the online discussions I’m able to share my experiences in the field and also learn a lot through my classmates’ experiences.
