It Starts with Research—and Leads to Virtually Endless Opportunities

Scientific inquiry can end up in an unlimited number of destinations. But invariably, it all begins at the same starting point: research. Tireless research helped WPI identify the growth and proliferation of robotics in increasing areas of society. This led to the recognition of the burgeoning demand for qualified robotics engineers and, consequently, the need for topnotch education programs.

The result was WPI’s first-in-the-nation BS in Robotics Engineering, followed by MS, PhD, and our unique BS/MS combined program.

Likewise, ongoing research keeps WPI at the forefront of robotics engineering advances and breakthroughs. Students and faculty members take advantage of the almost endless opportunities to engage in cutting-edge research across multiple disciplines. Their results are rewarding, inspiring, and historic.
