Open labs. Open doors. Open minds.
Here you’ll be challenged to engage in research that matters; you’ll offer important contributions leading to breakthroughs in problems facing society today. Solving these problems often requires insight from multiple fields of study, making WPI's strength in interdisciplinary research and education a significant advantage.
WPI’s historic philosophy of combining Theory and Practice encourages graduate students to make connections with colleagues at other top academic institutions, with industry leaders, and with professionals both nationally and internationally. You’ll be encouraged to present your work at national conferences and in peer-reviewed journals, to network with top thinkers and practitioners in your field, and to participate in a meaningful way in major funded research projects, all of which is invaluable professional preparation for your lifelong success.
