Want to be the first to know when Summer 2021 courses go live?
We're in the process of planning our course offerings and schedule for the upcoming 2021 summer term, which is currently expected to be held completely online. Check back soon for the most up-to-date information, and in the meantime, explore last year's courses to get an idea of what you can expect from a WPI summer.
Summer sessions at WPI allow you to immerse yourself in one or more courses you need to complete, want to try, or need the dedicated time to master.
Courses are offered in two sessions: a seven-week session that begins shortly after the conclusion of the WPI academic year; and a five-week session that ends in early August. With the options of taking one or more online classes—not to mention a 50% discount on every undergraduate summer session course—the summer schedule offers flexibility and multiple options to meet your distinct goals.
Session 1 (7 weeks): May 24-July 9, 2021
Session 2 (5 weeks): July 12-August 13, 2021
Online Course Options
All courses are taught by the same expert WPI faculty, teach the same material, and promote an academic experience that includes collaboration and interaction.
