Project-based Learning

  • WPI is truly unique in our approach to project-based education.
  • We have an extensive global projects program.
  • In addition to WPI Project Centers around the world where ChE students go to complete junior-year projects, the ChE Department has Project Centers in Modesto, Ca, Shanghai and Beijing, China, Nancy, France, and Campinas, Brazil where Chemical Engineering students go and do research and development projects on-site during their senior year.  We also have many on-campus project opportunities where students work with faculty on interesting research projects as well as many process and product development projects sponsored by local industry. 
  • Last year’s Project Presentation Day Schedule gives information on recently completed student projects.
