What is your favorite thing about your Wentworth experience?

My favorite thing was just identifying myself a Wentworth student. I am proud of my studies in this institution and have met some really great people throughout my journey.

While maintaining two jobs, helping raise three children and a grandchild, Maria Furtado took on added responsibility and earned a Bachelor of Science in Project Management. Furtado credits well-planned time management, prioritization of activities, and a focus on her goal for her success.

Throughout the program, Furtado made certain sacrifices in her personal and professional life in order to reach her goals of getting her degree and having a better future. Through all of the hard work, she successfully completed her degree on time and with an exceptional grade point average.

Two industry pioneers, Aquantia Corp.’s Faraj Aalaei and Monster Worldwide’s Mark Stoever, are scheduled to receive honorary degrees from their alma mater, Wentworth Institute of Technology.

The degrees recognize the leadership, ingenuity, and innovative spirit that Aalaei and Stoever have demonstrated in their careers, according to school officials.
