First published in 1897, the WPI Journal was the official magazine of Worcester Polytechnic Institute. It published news and features on science, engineering, technology, education and other topics of interest to its readers, including all graduates of the university. In 2002, the Journal was redesigned and renamed Transformations: A Journal of People and Change. This site contains issues of the Journal going back to 1996. The complete run of the WPI Journal is housed in the archives of WPI's Gordon Library.
