Wentworth's First Destination Survey is administered bi-annually to all Electromechanical Engineering degree students who participated in the December, April, or August commencement ceremonies. The data is collected up to six months following graduation by Wentworth Institute of Technology’s Center for Cooperative Education and Career Development. This information is collected in accordance with the national standards established by NACE. Undergraduate students pursue a variety of opportunities post-graduation, including full-time employment, graduate school, and entrepreneurial endeavors.
Only accredited engineering degree of its kind in U.S.
Wentworth just transitioned this degree from a 5-year to 4-year program. We are proud to offer the only Electromechanical Engineering program in the United States accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. This four-year program satisfies the electrical and mechanical engineering program criteria set by ABET. Graduates of this interdisciplinary program can work in the electrical, mechanical, and electromechanical engineering fields.
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.
