Our diverse faculty provides engaging, cutting-edge, and hands-on learning experiences for Computer Science students at WPI. WPI has multiple paths to tenure. The dual-mission track requires a faculty member to contribute to both WPI's teaching and research missions. A teaching-mission track requires a faculty member to focus on the teaching mission with some contributions to service and potentially research. Faculty in the CS department are collaborative and passionate about student learning outcomes and academic achievement through classroom instruction, academic advising, research, as well as advising Interactive Qualifying Projects and Major Qualifying Projects
