WPI's distinctive undergraduate education combines rigorous theory with hands-on application. Across your four years here you'll be expected to apply your knowledge in innovative ways to solve significant, real-world problems.
From the first year option to complete a Great Problems Seminar to a required senior capstone that can lead to a job offer, WPI students find that project work transforms the way they think and helps them to tackle most any challenge systematically.
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 science or technology with social issues and human needs.
As a management engineering major, your senior capstone project will typically be designed for a functioning business who sponsors your project. Recent projects include situational and cost analysis for an aggregate and asphalt plant, analyzing change management in academia, validating data and risk analytics, and analyzing the feasibility of commercializing a newly patented ergonomic surgical scalpel.
