Electromechanical Engineering, Bachelor of Science
Minor in Applied Mathematics
Electromechanical Engineering (BELM)
Wentworth’s BELM program was designed to train the next generation of engineers in interdisciplinary techniques for both electrical and mechanical engineering. They taught their students up to heat transfer and mechanical dynamics for their mechanical education, and feedback & controls and motors & controls for their electrical tracks. In the final year, the electrical and mechanical tracks are brought together with the two-semester courses for electromechanical systems and a design course called senior design.
Wentworth has always emphasized hands-on education in their classroom philosophy. Nearly all of their engineering classes involve a weekly two-hour lab, and labs often account for at least 30%-40% of the class grade. All of this practice helps to ensure that WIT graduates are well prepared for whatever their chosen industry throws at them.
The BELM programs leaves enough room with its electives for students to select a minor. A minor in applied mathematics focuses on advanced mathematic and topics that are faced across a range of industries. Students learn math up through calculus 3, probability & statistics, matrix theory, and applied differential equations. Then they learn “practical” math courses, like machine learning and a course titled “industrial problems in applied math”. Even the math courses have a hands-on approach, requiring a semester-long project that counts for a significant portion of the class grade.
