The Best of All Worlds

What do a scientist, an actor, an engineer, and a game designer have in common? Easy—they’re all students at WPI. With more than 50 majors and minors to choose from, you can tailor your degree to fit your own interests and goals.

No matter what path you choose, you’ll learn how to learn through the WPI Plan, our groundbreaking approach to undergraduate education rooted in theory and practice that challenges you and your thoughts on what’s possible.

Theory x Practice = IMPACT

 

Project-based learning is at the heart of a WPI education. As a student, you’ll have the opportunity to take what you learn in class and apply it to real-world situations and problems through projects on campus, across the city, or around the world.

What you’ll learn won’t stop there—starting your first year, you can conduct groundbreaking research alongside faculty who were voted #1 in best combining teaching and research by The Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Education.

Not Your Typical Study Abroad

Through WPI’s Global Projects Program, you’ll have the chance to solve real problems and improve the lives of people around the world. We believe it’s an invaluable experience, which is why every student receives up to a $5,000 Global Scholarship to complete a domestic or global project during their time at WPI.

After all, The Princeton Review rated WPI’s study abroad program in the Top 10 Most Popular Study Abroad Programs for five years in a row for a reason.
