Research

All the World’s a Lab

Environmental research, whether addressing issues of water quality, human health, sustainability, or preservation, provides compelling information as a means to discover effective solutions. Students in the Environmental Engineering program work in laboratories within a variety of WPI departments, as well as taking to the streets, watersheds, and communities, for data collection and answers.

WPI’s environmental programs encourage interdisciplinary research to fully explore research areas and options available both locally and globally. The future is in our graduates’ hands, and in Environmental Engineering they learn here ways to change the world for the better.
