Research From the Start

At WPI, do groundbreaking research as soon as you step on campus your first year. Where else can you discover that your grandmother's experiences  are encoded into her great-grandkids' genes through epigenetics?

Go into the World

Projects are at the core of the WPI curriculum, and our students do project work at 50+ project centers in the U.S. and abroad. We believe this experience is invaluable, which is why all first-year students receive up to a $5,000 Global Scholarship.
