Electrical Engineering (Bachelor of Science)
Wentworth's Electrical Engineering curriculum tracks the industry closely, always focused on preparing students for the challenges of today. Assistant Professor Afsaneh Ghanavati explains how the hands-on lab environment provides you the opportunity to test and apply the skills you learn in the classroom to watch your projects come to life.
Electrical and electronic components, devices and equipment are integrated into a wide range of products and technologies, from biomedical systems to the smart power grid, and electrical engineers make that happen. Students in Wentworth’s Electrical Engineering program study, model, analyze and design the systems that society relies on. Through our hands-on approach, students gain the theoretical foundation, problem-solving skills and laboratory exposure to successfully design, build and test their projects.
High Ranking Degree
