At WPI, project-based learning is embedded in every aspect of study, preparing our graduates to make the most of their knowledge, initiative, and ideas. We keep terms short and classes small. The study is more intense, but so is the support to help you succeed. Science and engineering may be notoriously tough to master, but far back in our history we decided that a failing grade is as much a failure on our part as the student’s. We want you to branch out, cross disciplines, and experiment. From our award-winning first year programs, to the low student-to-faculty ratio (14:1), you will not get lost in the crowd here.
