One of the best measures of an institute of higher learning is its students. Those who enroll in the Physics department at WPI come from a variety of backgrounds and geographic locations, but they are united in their quest to solve problems.
Our students enjoy being at the forefront of the ever-evolving field of physics. And they revel in their opportunities to contribute to technological advances that make a difference in people’s lives through classroom learning, work in the lab, and their project experiences.
Get to know some of our Physics students: where they come from, what drives them, why they chose to attend WPI, and how they add to the diverse landscape of WPI’s campus.
