The project center is a small two-story building where students once learned how to cast machine parts from molten metal. Today it's the administrative center for the WPI Plan, the University's innovative, project-oriented undergraduate program.
It's also home to the Interdisciplinary and Global Studies Division, which manages WPI's groundbreaking Global Perspective Program. The global program helps students gain an appreciation for other cultures by conducting professional-level projects at sites all around the world.
The upper level is also home to the Center for Communication Across the Curriculum, which includes the Writing Workshop. Here, student tutors help other students improve their writing skills by reviewing papers and reports. In the lower level you'll find the Career Development Center, which helps students launch their careers, and the Cooperative Education Office, which helps them find co-op assignments with corporations.
