At WPI, you’ll apply your classroom knowledge to real-world problems through project-based learning, the cornerstone of the WPI experience. From your first days here, you’ll work collaboratively with students in your major and other disciplines, in and out of the classroom.
Our Global Projects Program immerses students in communities as close as our home city of Worcester and at more than 40 other locations worldwide. Students work in teams with a faculty advisor and are accountable to a project sponsor on a specific problem that connects science or technology with social issues and human needs.
Project teams face challenges and opportunities as diverse as researching and improving protective equipment for football players to streamlining a process for workers to use sounds created from reflected light to observe sub-quality items in a production line.
