Activate Your Imagination with a WPI Education

Welcome to WPI Admissions!

WPI is a top-ranked university with more than 50 undergraduate degree programs in science, engineering, technology, math, business, and the humanities and arts.

A WPI education will enable you to pursue your passions at a world-class research institution with an innovative project-based curriculum where you combine theory and practice.

Whether you’re just beginning your college search and want to sign up for a WPI visit; have questions about financial aid and scholarships; interested in exploring more of the total student experience, including WPI student life; making your final enrollment decision; or somewhere in between, the WPI Admissions team is here to help. A lot goes into finding the right college, and we’ll do everything we can to assist and support you along the way.

Hands-on Learning from Day One

As the global leader in project-based learning, we know it’s critical for you to be able to take the skills you learn in the classroom and apply them to real-world problems. That’s why, starting from your first days at WPI, hands-on project-based learning will be the focal point of your education.

Interested in exploring campus for yourself? Sign up for one of our upcoming WPI tours and events. You’ve got options: our calendar is filled with virtual and in-person events to help you learn more about academics, Worcester, and WPI student life—often from WPI students themselves.

The First-Year Experience

WPI’s not your average tech school, and that’s evident even before you arrive on campus. Support, resources, a welcoming community, and a never-ending supply of goat puns—see what it’s like to join us as a first-year student.

Global Projects Program

Whether you decide on a project center across the city or across the world, the impact on the local community—and yourself—will last for years to come.

Research at WPI

You don’t have to wait to start engaging in research at WPI—you’ll have opportunities to contribute to meaningful, purpose-driven research from your first days on campus, giving yourself the knowledge, skills, and experience needed to solve the world’s toughest problems.

The Student Experience

Sure, college may not be all fun and games, but they’re definitely an important part of it. With over 235+ clubs and organizations ranging from underwater hockey to LARPing, it’s only a matter of time before you find your niche—and a new hobby or three.
