Wentworth Launching Satellite Program in Taunton

Bachelors degree program

Engineering Degree   CCRI (TBD)

TAUNTON, Mass. -- Wentworth Institute of Technology is bringing its campus to Local 223 in a bid to help provide a great education and good job for some of the region’s residents.
In partnership with the training center of IBEW Local 223 and Local 99, Wentworth’s College of Professional and Continuing Education (CPCE) has announced plans to open a satellite education program at Local 223‘s new facility located at the Myles Standish Industrial Park off Route 495.

Organizers describe the initiative as a classic win-win situation: Union members get education, certification, and personal career development, while those just starting out in careers can complete the specific education requirements they need to land a job.
