A Message from the Vice Provost for Research
WPI is a national research university, with a long tradition of collaborative work across disciplines; the focus on developing knowledge, and providing solutions to meaningful problems that can change the world in positive ways, goes back to WPI’s founding.
Faculty members create and disseminate knowledge, they are at the forefront of innovation and in doing so they engage students, from all levels, in the discovery process. In collaboration with federal agencies and corporations, WPI faculty and students are working to solve some of the most pressing issues of our time, in a broad range of fields, including biotechnology, data sciences, cybersecurity, educational assessment, healthcare, materials and manufacturing, energy and sustainability, and robotics. In the past decade, WPI’s research efforts have attracted a constantly increasing sponsored research funding.
In the past decade, significant investments in modern facilities (including the gleaming new 125,000 square-foot Life Sciences and Bioengineering Center, a beehive of cutting-edge work at the intersection of the life sciences and engineering) have provided the infrastructure for new and exciting multidisciplinary work.
