Facilities

A key strength of the Chemical Engineering Department at WPI is our research, conducted in our state-of-the-art facilities and labs. Undergraduate and graduate students work with faculty and within interdisciplinary teams, using cutting-edge equipment and processes to make discoveries that can benefit the world at large.

Our two main facilities are Goddard Hall , home to the Chemistry and Biochemistry and Chemical Engineering departments; and the Life Sciences and Bioengineering Center at Gateway Park, where the departments of Chemical Engineering, Biology and Biotechnology, Chemistry and Biochemistry, and Biomedical Engineering work together to conduct interdisciplinary research.
