Global Perspective Program

Instilling the Power and Responsibility to Change the World

From renewable energy to clean water to economic development, WPI has been preparing engineers, scientists, innovators, and entrepreneurs to change the world for nearly 150 years.

Through the Global Perspective Program (GPP), students collaborate with faculty advisors and community members at more than 30 Project Centers around the world to find solutions to issues that impact the people who make up those communities. The GPP provides WPI students with the opportunity to complete any of their projects: IQPMQP, or HUA Requirement off campus at one of our Project Centers.

WPI has sent more science and engineering students abroad (about 50 percent travel overseas for project work) than any other private university.
