At WPI learning has always been about combining theory and practice. Our multi-dimensional approach to education yields more than just graduates; it helps create innovators, inventors, entrepreneurs and most important, leaders.
Our academic departments offer more than 50 undergraduate and graduate degree programs leading to bachelor's, master's and PhD degrees, as well as an array of professional certificates.
WPI students have the advantage of working side by side with faculty members at the top of their fields in world-class research facilities. Our professors are committed researchers and scholars who bring their love of research into their classrooms and labs and give students countless opportunities to get involved and solve real-world problems.
Making a Difference through Project-based Learning
Students are involved in project-based learning as soon as they arrive on campus. From the Great Problems Seminars, to the Humanities and Arts project, to the Global Perspective Program, WPI students are tackling some of the most critical problems facing our world today and having life-changing experiences while they’re learning.
We don’t just believe in making the world a better place though science, technology, the arts and humanities – we actually do it.
Global Perspective Program
WPI’s Global Perspective Program is much more than a study abroad program. Immersed in another culture, students have seven weeks to solve a real, meaningful problem and produce results. For many, it's the highlight of their academic career.
