In 2008, Wentworth Institute of Technology’s Division of Professional and Continuing Studies signed an articulation agreement contract with the NERCC to deliver an Associates’ Degree in Construction Management to members of the Carpenters Union. This was Wentworth’s first articulation agreement with a trade union.
The program has evolved in the short time since its first inception. The agreement now includes both the Bachelor and Master of Science Degree programs.
