Projects are at the heart of the WPI curriculum. From the moment you step foot on campus, you’ll become immersed in our collaborative, hands-on atmosphere. During your time here, you’ll work with peers in different majors to create solutions to real-life problems locally, or around the world.
WPI's 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 social issues and human needs with science or technology.
By completing projects that combine the humanities with technology, you’ll explore and demonstrate the power of the humanities and arts to make the world a better place. Whether you translate a literary text for new audiences, develop tools for interpretation and analysis of historically meaningful large data sets, or animate a complex scientific concept for use in a science class, you’ll learn how your career path in the humanities and arts can affect the world for the better.
