Hire from Wentworth

Since 1975, Wentworth has prepared students to enter the workforce with significant experience through our cooperative education (co-op) program. All undergraduate day students must complete two co-ops to earn their degree, ensuring our graduates have current knowledge and skills to launch their careers. Whether through co-op or full-time employment, our students and alumni bring a solid skill set, extensive knowledge, and a passion for creative problem-solving. Wentworth works closely with prospective employers to help them recruit the talent they need and engage with the Institute in meaningful ways.
