Graduate Programs

Learn from the Leaders in Physics Education and Research

Industrious students with a love for physics and an innate ability to solve problems choose WPI so they may be part of a close-knit community of faculty members and students working together on the leading-edge of this constantly evolving field.

Our innovative education, which stresses collaboration between disciplines, is leading to continuous breakthroughs in our state-of-the-art laboratories. Research is currently under way in the areas of biophysics, nanoscience, order-disorder, astronomy, meteorology, quantum optics, and many other areas of this most basic science – which all other fields of science refer to and rely upon.

As a graduate student in the Physics department at WPI you’ll be encouraged to partner with our world-renown professors in their areas of expertise to determine where your particular strengths and interests lie. You’ll be inspired to develop a proficiency in a field of your choosing, and study the subject matter that inspires you most through our Independent Study/Project, and you’ll leave WPI prepared to take on a leadership role in the field of your dreams.
