Become an innovative problem solver in Wentworth's interdisciplinary Electromechanical program and prepare for a career as a professional engineer.
Wentworth's Bachelor of Science in Electromechanical Engineering program interdisciplinary electrical and mechanical program prepares students to become practicing engineers who will go on to be innovative problem solvers in industry, government, and academia. The hands-on experience working in our state-of-the-art laboratories and on co-op equips you with the knowledge and experience to make an impact. We are proud to offer the only Electromechanical Engineering program in the United States accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. Graduates of this interdisciplinary program can work in the electrical, mechanical, and electromechanical engineering fields.
Grounded in a solid foundation of mathematics, science, and the humanities, the Electromechanical Engineering program incorporates all the essential elements of an electrical and mechanical engineering curriculum. You'll 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. Students spend 40% of their time in the lab getting hands-on experience.
The Wentworth Bachelor of Science in Electromechanical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET.

What You'll Learn
You’ll establish a foundation for your Electromechanical Engineering program by taking introductory courses in physics and calculus, along with Introduction to Engineering, which will instill core engineering concepts that you’ll use throughout the program. You’ll also dive into engineering courses that utilize essential tools like CAD.
Second-year students establish a firm understanding of electromechanical engineering concepts in courses like Circuit Analysis and Engineering Thermodynamics. You’ll also focus on building solid foundational knowledge in mathematics and chemistry.
An optional pre co-op work term is available to students during the summer semester.
In the fall and summer semesters of your third year, you’ll continue to bolster your electromechanical engineering knowledge with courses like Engineering Fluid Mechanics, Signals & Systems, and Materials Science.
In the spring, you’ll begin the first of two required co-ops.
In the fall, you’ll go on your second required co-op to gain more hands-on industry experience.
The remainder of your program includes courses in Engineering Dynamics and Electromechanical Systems, as well as your senior capstone project, which you’ll work on over your final two semesters.
