They were more than happy to take my GI Bill money but the taxpayer is not getting there money's worth. The most important part of engineering is probably the math but can you guess which department happens to have some of the laziest, condescending staff in the college.

God help you if you've been out of academics for 10 years but still met the deceivingly low entry standards. Ask for help and they'll tell you "you should know this" and leave it at that. That's assuming you can get hold of them that is. Some will mark you down but not tell you why or answer any emails. Avoid this school and look elsewhere.

I was commuter for all 5 years obtainingBrightElectrical Engineering
I was commuter for all 5 years obtaining my BSEE in 1991. My co-ops helped build my resume and provide me with an income. Looking back I think I received a decent education. I had some poor professors and some really good professors which is pretty much the same for any college. School gives you the foundation but it is what you learn in industry that grows your career. I was accepted to Northeastern and WPI but I chose Wentworth for the price and hands-on experience. I'm glad with my choice.

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.
