Electromechanical Engineering Bachelor of Science
Leading to the Bachelor of Science Degree in Electromechanical Engineering
The Bachelor of Science in Electromechanical Engineering is accredited by the Engineering Accreditation Commission of ABET, http://www.abet.org.
The Electromechanical Engineering (BELM) program is a five-year engineering program with a dynamic interdisciplinary character and unique approach to learning. Grounded in a solid foundation of mathematics, science, and humanities and social sciences, the BELM program incorporates all the essential elements of an electrical and mechanical engineering curriculum. The BELM program features engineering design courses, extensive exposure to engineering problem solving, and a faculty committee management structure that responds quickly to industrial change and academic needs. Wentworth stresses the importance of hands-on experience and extensive lab work. BELM students spend a significant amount of time working in our state-of-the-art laboratories with computers and microprocessors being a large part of the program. Students use computers and test equipment extensively to verify and develop principles of engineering in diverse areas including mechanics of materials, embedded microcontroller systems, analog and digital circuit design, thermodynamics, vibrations, materials science, feedback controls, and machine design.
Electromechanical Engineering Program Mission Statement
The mission of this interdisciplinary electrical and mechanical program is to prepare students to become practicing engineers who will become innovative problem solvers in robotics, industry, government, and academia.
Program Educational Objectives
The educational objectives of this program, which describe the expectations of our graduates a few years after graduation, are as follows:
- Contribute significantly in the design and development of complex electromechanical systems
- Work effectively as members of multidisciplinary teams that analyze data critically, synthesize information and implement ethical solutions for the betterment of society
- Prepare and present technical information professionally and effectively to various audiences
- Further their education through directed or independent studies to advance themselves personally and professionally
The Electromechanical Engineering program at Wentworth is committed to both a collaborative teaching model and a committee management structure, thereby providing the students access to many innovative interdisciplinary educational opportunities.
Students should demonstrate these abilities upon graduation:
- An ability to identify, formulate, and solve complex engineering problems by applying principles of engineering, science, and mathematics.
- An ability to apply engineering design to produce solutions that meet specified needs with consideration of public health, safety, and welfare, as well as global, cultural, social, environmental, and economic factors.
- An ability to communicate effectively with a range of audiences.
- An ability to recognize ethical and professional responsibilities in engineering situations and make informed judgments, which must consider the impact of engineering solutions in global, economic, environmental, and societal contexts.
- An ability to function effectively on a team whose members together provide leadership, create a collaborative and inclusive environment, establish goals, plan tasks, and meet objectives.
- An ability to develop and conduct appropriate experimentation, analyze and interpret data, and use engineering judgment to draw conclusions.
- An ability to acquire and apply new knowledge as needed, using appropriate learning strategies.
Electromechanical Engineering is a co-operative education program that provides students with one of the most important aspects of a Wentworth education. Electromechanical Engineering students will complete at least two non-consecutive semesters of full-time co-operative work experience in industry in fields related to electromechanical engineering. Graduates may continue their studies at the graduate level or pursue an industrial career. Wentworth Electromechanical Engineering graduates are multidisciplinary engineers, with expertise in electrical and mechanical engineering, and as such, are in high demand and well prepared to meet the professional challenges of a constantly changing and increasingly global work force.
Total credits for degree: 174 credits
This is a five-year program, starting in the fall semester of the student’s first year and planned to end in the spring semester of the student’s fifth year.
