About the Graduate Programs at WPI
A Premier University for Graduate Studies
WPI’s graduate programs offer everything you would expect from a premiere university, and more. You will work with internationally renowned faculty as you undertake groundbreaking research, study from a rigorous curriculum, and prepare to be a leader in your field. You will also broaden your thinking and expand your potential through our emphasis on interdisciplinary collaboration, innovative thinking, and practical applicability.
Open Labs, Open Doors
From day one you will work side-by-side with faculty mentors as well as peers, industry partners, and researchers from across many disciplines. Our labs and facilities are designed to encourage researchers from different areas to work closely together, leading to breakthroughs and innovations that cross disciplinary boundaries.
Hands-on Research with Impact
WPI researchers have a passion for tackling and finding solutions to the pressing problems facing society today. Here you will advance in your field by investigating issues that affect local or global communities. Both in the classroom and in the lab, you will be challenged to think creatively as you explore important issues that matter to you and apply your findings to real life.
A Supportive Community
You will be part a close-knit and supportive community of 1,100 full- and part-time graduate students. Our moderate size enables us to provide state-of-the-art resources and facilities while keeping class sizes small so that students and faculty can develop close bonds and mentoring relationships. We also encourage all of our students, whether full- or part-time, resident or commuter, to participate in our diverse extracurricular activities.
