A degree with you at the center of it all

WPI’s approach to education is personal. As a graduate student, you know it takes hard work and determination to reach your goals. Your efforts help you gain knowledge and expertise so you can use those skills in your field.

As a university, we aim to get you ready to use those skills—and more—in the real world so you’ll be successful and make an impact with your work.


We take your success personally.

At WPI, we prepare lifelong learners. We’re here to get you ready for everything that’s to come after you graduate. While you’re here, your work and research will deepen your understanding so you can connect the dots between your courses and your career. Our job is to give you all the other skills you’re going to need to be successful.

Professional development for graduate students is a serious focus here. Whether that means helping students learn to investigate an independent research inquiry, give a succinct presentation, or craft a career-boosting resume, we invest in the whole student. You’ll leave here with much more than a degree.


Your drive and your passion are personal.

At WPI, your work isn’t based on your discipline—it’s based on you. You bring your focus, and we help you find a way to change the world with it. If you want to combine two areas that aren’t a typical academic pairing, you can do that at WPI. Here, it’s just as common to find robotics engineers working on healthcare devices as it is to find biochemists working in materials science.

As a graduate student at WPI, you’ll have more opportunities with this approach. The future workplace needs more than trained experts—it needs people who thoughtfully and successfully balance science and technology with a human-centered approach.   


The personal connections you make here go beyond the classroom walls.

You invest a lot in your education—time, funds, talent. We take that investment seriously; our community supports you so you thrive. Collaboration is important at WPI, but so are the relationships you’ll develop. Close interactions and meaningful mentorships are signature to our educational approach—especially when it comes to our talented faculty. You’ll work closely with them, and also learn from the life and career experiences they’ve had. Those connections last long after you walk across the stage at Commencement.


Your success is our goal.

Our graduate students are an essential part of the WPI community. We know the work they do here will change the world. Our graduate students get an excellent academic foundation, valuable professional development, and meaningful personal relationships. When they leave WPI, they are ready to tackle anything.

Over 50 graduate programs, but just one you.
