Embracing the Challenge of Educating Tomorrow’s Problem Solvers

While science in general has played a critical role in moving civilization forward, chemistry and biochemistry have unquestionably been at the forefront. From lifesaving to life-improving breakthroughs, these disciplines have changed the world in countless ways.

And they will continue to so today, tomorrow, and far beyond. There will always be a need for qualified and innovative chemists and biochemists to uncover and deliver solutions for providing energy for our society, feeding the world’s people, and eradicating disease.

At WPI, we recognize this need and embrace the challenge of educating future chemists and biochemists who leave academia fully prepared to take on real-world problems. That’s why we take an interdisciplinary, project-based approach to learning, utilizing state-of-the-art equipment and facilities. WPI graduates acquire crucial problem-solving skills that set them apart and make them more attractive to potential employers.
