The World Is Our Lab

In WPI’s Environmental & Sustainability Studies (ESS) program, a student’s research facilities are anywhere environmental issues need to be addressed. And today, that’s just about everywhere around the globe—in a river, remote village, or a city or on a construction site overrun with industry.

With a hands-on interdisciplinary foundation, ESS students apply their scientific and technical knowledge early on to local and international communities to study air, water, and solid waste pollution and combine it with their sociopolitical savvy to engage in community issues that solve environmental problems and promote ongoing sustainability.
