Families

Welcome to the WIT Family!

Thank you for entrusting Wentworth to educate your student. Since 1975, we have offered one of the most comprehensive cooperative education (co-op) programs of its kind in the nation. Each year, more than 1,700 students participate in a semester long, full-time, (almost always) paid work experience that is directly related to their program of study.

To adequately prepare for this life-changing experience, students take a co-op prep class called Intro to Co-op, taught by the Co-op & Career Advisor who is dedicated to the student’s major. Parents are our partners as we work to ensure our students’ success. Please encourage your student to register for Intro to Co-op at least one semester prior to their first co-op.

Parents as providers of opportunity

Because so many of our students’ parents are leaders in their respective fields, we invite you—if you are able—to provide co-op and employment opportunities to Wentworth students and alumni. To create a successful co-op, read the requirements. We welcome your participation.
