Army and Air Force ROTC


Army ROTC (Reserve Officers' Training Corps) has been part of Wentworth's curriculum for many years. Sponsored through Northeastern University , Wentworth Army ROTC awards two-year, three-year and four-year Army scholarships with the goal of commissioning the future officer leadership of the United States Army.

The program consists of two phases: the Basic Course (freshman and sophomore years), which imposes no obligation on non-scholarship students; and the Advanced Course (remaining years of the academic program). Participation in the Basic Course provides an excellent opportunity for students to decide whether they wish to become Army officers. Enlisted soldiers (BT/AIT graduates) do not have to participate in the Army ROTC Basic Course but MUST contact Army ROTC during their sophomore year.

Air Force ROTC

Air Force ROTC is an educational leadership program designed to provide young men and women the opportunity to become Air Force officers while completing a bachelor's or master's degree. The Air Force ROTC program prepares students to assume challenging positions of responsibility and importance in the Air Force.

Through a cross-enrolled program with Boston University, interested Wentworth Institute of Technology students may participate in the Air Force Reserve Officer Training Corps Program. Requirements include yearly Aerospace Studies classes, Leadership Laboratory classes, and physical fitness training. Mandatory weekly time commitments range from 5 to 7 hours. Once students complete their degree, the Air Force offers a wide variety of career fields from which to choose including flying opportunities as a pilot, navigator, or weapons controller. The Air Force has opportunities for students of ANY MAJOR. In addition to the tremendous leadership and management training that cadets receive, they can also benefit from several scholarship programs.

If you are interested in joining the Air Force ROTC program or just want more information, contact the Department of Aerospace Studies, Boston University, 118 Bay State Road, Boston, MA 02215 at 617-353-6316 or 4705. Classes are held at Boston University. You can also visit the detachment website.
