Faculty

Wentworth faculty, experts in their field, and diverse in their backgrounds share a love for teaching and mentoring. Student success is of paramount importance at Wentworth.

Learning happens everywhere at Wentworth from the classrooms, labs, studios, maker spaces, the field and online. Tapping into students’ individual passions and interests, Wentworth's professors are seen energetically gesturing at the front of a classroom room, sitting next to a team of students solving problems, or cheering on students as they present their work.  

Our professors use active-learning strategies for teaching challenging theory in the context of real-world projects. They connect the classroom with industry partners for real-world projects that inspire students to stretch their potential.
