X-ray Vision? Wentworth Graduate Student Can See Through Walls
The year is 2000. You’re working on a report (due the next day) and you have one fact left to check. You go to your computer, open your browser…and wait. While you wait, you’re serenaded by the shriek of the computer as it connects to the Internet.
For those lucky enough to grow up in the age of wi-fi and smartphones, this was called “dial-up,” and it was not something that most of us found inspiring.
Student Developing Innovative System of Electric Vehicles
Wentworth Institute of Technology student Paul Miller is working on an electric motor and battery that has the potential to be a game changer for anyone who rides a scooter, skateboard, or bike.
Miller's journey began two years ago when he built an electric bike as a side project.

Wentworth Professor: ‘Fixing the T Not Enough, We Need Massive Expansion’
The Boston Globe spoke with Wentworth Institute of Technology Professor Jim Lambrechts about the MBTA, a transit system that he believes cannot simply be remedied, but rather should be widely expanded.
Video: Students Partner with Teradyne for Capstone Design Projects
Students in Wentworth's School of Engineering worked with Teradyne, an automatic test equipment designer and manufacturer, to help address an issue the company was having with downtime on a test procedure.
Students and faculty worked with Teradyne for eight months to identify the problem, create a proposal within the first month, and then go through the design process as part of their Capstone Design Projects.
Elevating Learning with Lightboard Technology
Wentworth faculty often find creative solutions, techniques, and strategies to engage their students, which includes integrating technology into the classroom. Nasser Yari, Ph.D., P.E., Assistant Professor in the School of Engineering, has found that Lightboard technology is one of the most innovative and effective methods of delivering online lectures to students in his Civil Engineering courses.
