I've been a student at Wentworth for 4BrightElectrical Engineering
I've been a student at Wentworth for 4 years. Everyone starts out liking the school, but eventually realize it's not good. The school tells incoming students a bunch of different programs and facilities that are on campus, but once you actually start, you don't use most of them and the ones you do use, you use sparingly. The software used is only available on campus and when asked for off campus licensing, IT will make you go through hoops to get it or just deny you altogether. The grading scale makes getting good grades harder and boosts the lower grades to make the institute look better. Most professors are either really good or absolutely awful, and the bad ones outnumber the good by a LOT. Looking at electrical engineers at other schools, I'd say most Wentworth kids are really underqualified.

Question
Wentworthless Institute of Technology is more like it.Super BrilliantEngineering Department
Wentworthless Institute of Technology is more like it. This place will degrade you and make you feel absolutely invaluable. Coming here, you are simply another headcount and paycheck. You will not receive a proper education you expect to get for the money you pay. It is simply a fraud. It is very misleading for such a rubbish institution to be spoken so highly, and PLEASE do not fall for this silver platter of BS they are trying to sell you. There are a few faculty who actually care about their job and you as a student, but that number is simply not high enough to justify the 32K tuition alone.

Also, the staff and faculty are extremely fake. They may say they care and that you should take advantage of all the programs offered, but realistically, they'll be taking more advantage of you. Most of employees are overpaid and inexperienced in the work they do, or try to do. Simply said, 80% of the materials taught in class do not pertain to your major, or inspire you, or motivate you, or will be on the test.PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE, on behalf of all the students here and for the sake of your career, do not attend this place not even if it is your very last option.

Question
The co-op program here is supposed to beQuite BrightMechanical Engineering
The co-op program here is supposed to be top notch. I hear of kids getting extremely good salaries (60-80k) right out of school. If you are social, the consortium is awesome. They plan events for all of the participating schools. My one gripe is that the school is not very well known outside of MA. There is a lot of group work, so be sure to pick good group mates.
