    I am currently going to Wentworth Institute of Technology (WIT) in the BMET (mechanical engineering technology) program. However I was original in the BELM (electomechanical engineering) program. I switched because I really did not enjoy the electrical side of the program. But I now find myself in a program that is second to BSME and from what I found the start pay is less and it takes 4 more years to become a PE. I was wondering if anyone has been in this situation before. I believe that I can “upgrade my degree from a BMET to a BSME but I am not sure how to. In the past I’ve asked my school but WIT is not the best a student service (switching programs was a huge pain) who ever I ask at the school tells me to asks some other person and then that person doesn’t know either it’s just a big run around. I recently sent an e-mail to the head of my department and I’m waiting to hear back. I have also been told the main difference between the two programs is the calculus. But I’ve taken calculus 1-3 and I will be taking differential equations. And I was also told it was to do with calculus based physics which I took when I was still in the BELM program. Has anyone gone through this process of “upgrading” there degree? Any advice? is it worth it?
