Our Students

One of the best measures of an institute of higher learning is its students. Those who attend WPI come from a variety of backgrounds and geographic locations, but they are united in their passion for life sciences and are using it to make a difference. They do this through their studies, as well as their research and lab work, using the facilities of the Life Sciences and Bioengineering Center and others. And they take that passion and knowledge and apply it through Major Qualifying Projects (MQPs) and Interactive Qualifying Projects (IQPs) that benefit the world at large.
