Wentworth Institute of Technology was founded in 1904 by virtue of a $2.7-million bequest from Boston marble merchant Arioch Wentworth. Students first enrolled at the institute in 1911 and since that time Wentworth has been a national leader in technical education.
Today, more than 3,600 full-time and part-time students are enrolled in 19 baccalaureate degree programs in the fields of architecture, construction, computer science, engineering, design, management, and technology. Wentworth's nationally recognized educational model combines rigorous theoretical instruction, hands-on experience in state-of-the-art labs and studios, and a hallmark co-op program that produces high-quality graduates well-equipped to thrive in the knowledge-based and global economy of the 21st century. Professional and community service, as well as athletic activities, instill leadership and entrepreneurial skills in our students. Wentworth graduates, many of whom are CEOs, business owners, and high-profile industry leaders, fuel the economic growth of the region and beyond.
Over the last 15 years, Wentworth has invested more than $160 million in facilities and modern residence halls. Close to 80 percent of our students reside on the institute's beautiful 35-acre campus located in the heart of Boston, Massachusetts. A cutting-edge laptop initiative has been established to implement information technology into the curriculum and the campus is wireless.
