Education is one of the most important driving forces for long-term sustainable economic growth. I enjoy teaching at WPI because WPI embraces it well by inspiring continuous innovation and creativity in our students and preparing them as future leaders of all industries. WPI focuses on both theory and practice through our project-based curriculum, which provides a differentiated education experience for each student. We do not believe that one size fits all in education but customize the learning experience based on each student’s interest and according to the needs of sponsors, including corporations, nonprofit organizations, and communities, around the world. Every project experience is unique as the teams grow, make progress, take ownership of their project, refine their presentation, and impress the project sponsors. Our motivated students work together as a team to take on social responsibility and address real-world issues.
