Activate Your Imagination

Are you curious and creative? Do you like to work in teams to get things done while making your own decisions and setting your own course? Do you love math and science, but feel just as passionate about subjects such as music, art, or movies?

WPI could be the right choice for you to pursue your passions at a world-class research institution.

Whether you are just beginning your college search, making your final enrollment decision, or somewhere in between, the WPI admissions team is here to help you along the way.

Admissions Fall Open Houses

WPI is excited to host three fall open houses!

These are great days to learn more about specific academic areas, talk to faculty members, and hear from current students.

Register for the events, learn more, and see a sample schedule.

Go into the World

Projects are at the core of the WPI curriculum, and some students choose to fulfill their project work at one of our 40+ project centers in the U.S. or abroad. We believe this experience is invaluable, which is why beginning with the Class of 2022, all students will receive up to a $5,000 scholarship to complete a global project.
