Spring Commencement 2018—Tyler Springhetti

Tyler Springhetti, Computer Information Systems

Tyler Springhetti is leaving Wentworth with a variety of experiences under his belt. If he wasn’t working as an RA on campus, he was planning the next steps as the vice president of the Ski and Snowboard Club. When he wasn’t participating in the Wentworth Student Alumni Society, he was working as a karate instructor. 

Springhetti is graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Computer Information Systems, and a double minor in Computer Networking and Business Management. Springhetti will work at OneBeacon Insurance Group as a Software Developer after graduation.

What is your favorite thing about your Wentworth experience?

Having the opportunity to live and learn in the City of Boston. I've thought about this a lot recently and I've realized how different it is to live in a city than on a college campus in a more rural community. I truly loved being in the area that Wentworth resides and it made my experience so much better!

How has Wentworth prepared you for post-graduate life?
 
The co-op program is the most beneficial service Wentworth provides to its students and incorporating it into the curriculum without having to add an extra year of school is just as important. Having multiple co-ops is what I believe helped with my preparation the most, but I still see many of my professors as influences in my success at Wentworth, as well.

What are you planning to do after commencement?

I have a job lined up after graduation! I will be returning to where I had my first co-op, which was at OneBeacon Insurance Group. I’ll be going into the company as a software developer.  

Who is someone at Wentworth that you’ve greatly admired or looked up to?

I would say I've greatly admired my (Associate Professor)Michael Mozill for a few reasons.  He's always happy or has a positive attitude on life. He always talks about his wife and his children and the job that he really loves. But I also admire his passion for his work as a professor as he continually strives to help students as much as he can. He's one of few professors I've had at Wentworth that will do so much for students to make sure they get the best experience possible.

What advice would you offer to students entering Wentworth?

I would say that the next four  years of your life are going to go by so quickly that you'll be in my shoes before you know it. Take every moment you can to get out into the city, and have as many experiences with as many of your friends in as many places as you possibly can! Life is too short to wait around to have those experiences tomorrow.
