I&E programs hero image

WPI believes innovation and entrepreneurship encompasses more than startups and new products. I&E is about thinking big and thinking broad. It's about ideas, new approaches, and better ways of doing things to revolutionize our systems. 

Luckily, WPI's network of those who share the excitement of potential and the pull of possibility is vast.

Our programs are designed to teach students the entrepreneurial journey by creating value with their inspiring idea, building their transferrable skills through experiential learning, and elevating their innovation through networking and funding. 

Offering hands-on programs that allow anyone to find a niche where they are free to be their most creative self is key to building the kind of ecosystem of innovation that crosses every segment of campus.
