Bachelor of Science in Engineering – Interdisciplinary
College of Engineering & Computer Science
Engineered for—and by—you
Wentworth’s Bachelor of Science in Engineering (BSEN) is a 4-year innovative interdisciplinary degree for students who wish to create a curriculum integrating their engineering and non-engineering interests in a structured manner. Study Abroad is also highly encouraged with various options to select from!
BSEN allows you to select a concentration from the following areas and directed studies/minors:
You may select a minor from a variety of departments through the College of Engineering and Technology, College of Arts and Sciences, College of Architecture, Design and Construction Management.
Minors include Aerospace, Applied Mathematics, Bioinformatics, Biology, Business Management, Chemistry, COF Minor in Sustainability, Computer Networking, Computer Science, Construction Management, Electrical Engineering, Manufacturing, Media Culture and Communication Studies, Performing Arts, and Physics.
Or Directed Studies
You may select electives that match your personal interests and broaden your career options. The combinations are varied and limited only by your interests and imagination. Our engineering students have focused on fields ranging from Sustainability, Life Cycle Analysis, Business Management, Computer Science, Applied Math and Sciences, Music, and Art.
Working closely with the Department Chair and/or a full-time faculty member, you’ll design an engineering education meeting your personal and professional goals.
The curriculum includes:
- Core engineering courses (Biomedical, Civil, Computer, Electrical, Manufacturing and Mechanical Engineering Concentration Tracks)
- Mathematics and science courses that support the engineering discipline
- General education courses that give you the foundation to understand the role and responsibility of an engineer in society and in a global environment
- Directed Studies/Minor Courses
- Engineering design courses that allow you to collaborate with your peers on a variety of projects
- Study Abroad Opportunities—a rare opportunity for engineering students.
