Department of Mechanical Engineering

The Department of Mechanical Engineering offers an application- and practice-based curriculum. Through hands-on laboratory-based projects and a cooperative work experience, our graduates are recognized by employers as productive contributors in their respective fields immediately after graduation.

We build upon Wentworth’s educational mission and curricular model to assess the effectiveness of our programs. Central to Wentworth’s co-operative education is the use of design and project courses throughout the curriculum to assist students in the integration and application of new knowledge into their developing professional practice skills. Through a practice-oriented education, students utilize technological advancements, contribute to innovative design solutions in a collaborative environment, and make appropriate decisions for their respective areas of professional responsibility.
