From Day one:

Project-Based Learning

Take the theories you learn in the classroom and put them into practice through project work starting from your first days on campus—there’s a reason our motto translates to theory and practice, after all.

50+ Global Project Centers

Travel to one of our 50+ project centers around the world to collaborate with a local community to address a problem. You’ll learn just as much from them as they will from you, and your work can have a lasting impact—not just on the community, but on yourself.

More than STEM

Pursue your passion in music while earning your robotics degree, take center stage in the lab and the theatre, or perfect your skills in both underwater hockey and business.

More Than STEM

"Coming to WPI and finding out I can still be the theater kid that I am at heart, while still pursuing my degree in engineering was really cool, because ... I get to pursue both my passions at the same time."
