Project Opportunities During Summer

Summer is a great time to complete a project. For many students, leaving campus for a term during the academic year conflicts with other plans. Whether you are a student athlete, completing a double major or BS/MS degree, have your eye on a co-op, or hope to graduate early, summer can help you make the most of your college experience. Tuition for summer project experiences is reduced to 50 percent, making it a great value! Contact GEO ​for more information

Early Research Opportunities

The Early Research Experience in E Term (EREE) program offers a first research experience to interested students who have not yet had an authentic research experience. We will provide current first and second-year students an initial immersive research experience with a WPI faculty mentor.

Research Opportunities

WPI faculty members and students are engaged in advanced, interdisciplinary research across a broad range of fields. From cutting-edge work in tissue engineering and regenerative medicine, to explorations of the technological and policy issues surrounding cybersecurity, to studies of issues as diverse as firefighter health and security and the fire safety challenges of green buildings, this fundamental and applied research is addressing vital societal problems and technological challenges and producing innovations and insights that are helping build a better world.

Academic Advising

The role of the faculty advisor is to help their advisees design a program of study, which reflects the students’ interests and professional goals. They are also available to help their advisees choose among academic alternatives, interpret catalog requirements, and review degree audits and grade reports. Academic Advising, in turn, provides supplemental support to undergraduate students to help them create academic plans and reach their goals.

Academic Resources Center

WPI’s Academic Resources Center (ARC) provides academic support services that are designed to enrich and enhance the learning experience of all WPI undergraduate students. In the ARC, you will find tutors and specialized support for math, science, and computer science courses, as well as a quiet place to study if you just need somewhere to think and do your work undisturbed.

Writing Center

The mission of the Writing Center is to work interactively with WPI students to improve written, oral, and visual communication. Our trained writing tutors provide individual and group peer tutoring on a range of projects including course papers, presentations, dissertations, and job-related documents. We hope to provide an approachable peer resource for students seeking assistance with their communication projects.

From academic support to health and wellness services to specialized programs for international students and so much more, WPI is committed to making sure our students have the resources and support they need to thrive and succeed, both academically and personally.
