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 every student receives up to a $5,000 Global Scholarship.
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?
We want each and every student to have an opportunity to get to know WPI on a personal level and learn more about the inclusive, close-knit community you'll find in the heart of Massachusetts. While we are open for in-person visits, we also have a variety of daily virtual information sessions and live chats where you can learn more about academics, student life, and the admissions and financial aid process to get all of your questions answered.
