Wentworth aims to be a student-centered institution of inclusive excellence that embraces a culture of innovation and creativity; serves society through urban engagement; and fosters growth for local, regional, and national economies.

Our nearly 4,000 students are relentlessly curious, and their passion carries well beyond the lab. From robotics clubs to design collaborations, there is no shortage of opportunity for students to connect with others and challenge themselves in pursuit of a better tomorrow. Wentworth prioritizes students’ health and well-being and provides high-quality services, activities, programs, and opportunities to support their growth and transformation.
