Great Problems Seminar (GPS)

This two-course introduction to university-level research and project work focuses on themes of current global importance. Everything you do will be tied to current events, societal problems, and human needs. GPS is all about important problems. The skills you’ll develop are exactly what you’ll need to be successful in your project work at WPI, and in your future career.

This program was one of three first year programs recently recognized by the National Academy of Engineering as a 'Real World Engineering Education Program'.  A total of 95 programs were nominated, and only 29 received that designation.  Find out more here
