You’ll also dive into engineering courses that utilize essential tools like CAD.

  • Year 2

    Wentworth Engineering students can choose from one of five engineering concentrations. Second-year students begin to take courses in their desired area of study to build a solid foundational knowledge.

    An optional pre co-op work term is available to students during the summer semester.

  • Year 3

    In the fall and summer semesters of your third year, you’ll continue to bolster your engineering knowledge in your chosen concentration.

    In the spring, you’ll begin the first of two required co-ops.

  • Year 4

    In the fall, you’ll go on your second required co-op to gain more hands-on industry experience.
