Project-based Learning

WPI’s distinctive undergraduate education experience combines rigorous theory with hands-on application. Throughout your four years here, you’ll apply your knowledge in innovative ways to solve significant societal and business 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.

Management information systems majors are relied upon by project sponsors to apply their skills, methods, and knowledge to a variety of areas, including:

  • Business-to- business and consumer e-commerce applications
  • Design, development, and networking of database systems
  • Decision support systems
