Wentworth Institute of Technology


Wentworth Institute of Technology is located in both the Fenway and Mission Hill neighborhoods of Boston. In 1904 a Boston businessman left an endowment to found WIT with the goal of creating a "school to furnish education in the mechanical arts." Today WIT offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in technical design and engineering. The school enrolls 3,636 students and is a member of the six-institution Colleges of the Fenway organization. WIT is well-regarded for its civic involvement, and approximately half of the student body engages with the school's Center for Community and Learning Partnerships.

Wentworth Institute of Technology filed its most recent Institutional Master Plan in 2010. The IMP includes the renovation of an existing building to create the new Flanagan Campus Center, an 18,000 square foot academic addition at 540 Parker Street, a new student residence at 525 Huntington Avenue, a new 45,000 square foot Center Engineering and Technology, and a new soccer field over underground parking.
