WPI Plans for Fall Opening Latest Information

Because the ways in which materials are made, used, and recycled can affect fields as diverse as medicine, energy, transportation, and manufacturing, Materials Science & Engineering (MTE) research plays a key role in helping advance these important areas.

Cutting-edge research currently being conducted at WPI's Metal Processing Institute and Integrative Materials Design Center includes work in these areas:

  • Casting, powder metallurgy, and heat treating—helping some of the nation’s most important industries stay up to date and competitive
  • Advanced technology for recovering metal from the waste stream—reusing it in the most effective and economical manner
  • Efficiency and reusability—designing and manufacturing products to optimize performance, reliability, and recyclability
