Leading-edge learning

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering at Wentworth balances theory with the simulation and laboratory exercises students need to model, analyze, design and realize physical systems, components and processes. The program combines applied engineering design, the extensive use of industry-relevant software and a faculty-driven curriculum that parallels industrial challenges and changes.

Through this laboratory-based, mathematically rigorous program, you will explore open-ended design problems as part of interdisciplinary teams and spend a great deal of time working in our state-of-the-art laboratories. You will use computers and test equipment extensively to verify and develop principles of engineering in such diverse areas as statistics, thermodynamics, materials science, data acquisition, structural analysis and machine design. You’ll gain a solid foundation in mathematics, science and engineering principles as well as crucial knowledge in the humanities and social sciences.

Frontline opportunities

The Bachelor of Science in Mechanical Engineering program is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET. So whether you’re interested in the traditional industries of mechanism design and power generation or drawn to emerging fields such as the development of biomedical and electromechanical devices, you’ll graduate from Wentworth prepared to pursue a rewarding career, professional licensure, or an advanced degree.
