Spring 2012 Dean's List Student Spotlight

Dean's List Student Spotlight: Valeria Martinuzzi Morena


Congratulations on receiving Dean’s list honors. Tell us a little about why you decided to come to Wentworth.

Thank you so much! I’m originally from Venezuela and I moved to Boston to follow my college career.  I actually started at the New England Institute of Art as an Audio and Media Technology Student, but after about a year and a half I decided to transfer to Wentworth and study Electromechanical Engineering.

So you are a transfer student; how are you enjoying Wentworth so far?

I really like Wentworth, I think that what I like the most about it is that the classes are not as large as in many other schools, so you actually get a chance to be more involved in the classes; you can ask questions while interacting with the other students and the professor.

What is your major?

I’m an Electromechanical Engineering student and I’m currently doing the Biomedical Engineering concentration.

Why did you choose that major?

I couldn't’t decide between mechanical engineering and electrical engineering, and I later found out that the Electromechanical Engineering program at Wentworth offered a concentration in Biomedical Engineering which I’m very interested in.

What has been your favorite class so far and why?

So far, I would have to say that Network Theory I and II are my favorite classes. I think it’s because they are very challenging since it’s all imaginary, but once you overcome the challenge it’s so fun!

How were you able to do so well?

I try to be present at every class physically and mentally, and I take fully advantage of the office hours. If you do the homework and you have any questions about it, you can always pass by the office hours of your instructor and get all your questions answered!

Do you have any tips for other students looking to improve academically?

As I said earlier, try not to miss any classes! Also, take advantage of those office hours.

What would you like to be doing once you graduate?

I would like to be working in the Biomedical Engineering Field, either in research or design.
