WPI’s Got What?
When you hear “WPI,” you might think “great engineering school”—and you’d be right—but that’s just the beginning.
It’s also a place where tomorrow’s data scientists, physicians, and neuroscientists get their start. It’s where future biologists, business professionals, and thespians go for the knowledge, experience, and support needed to make their ideas a reality. It’s home to the chemists who moonlight as musicians, the deans who participate in ballroom dancing competitions, the robotics students who dabble in video SFX in their spare time. It’s where the cheese connoisseurs mingle with the underwater hockey players, where the mural artists collaborate with the game designers, creating an interdisciplinary crossover for the ages.
It’s where students, faculty, and staff alike take the best of our worlds and use it to create the best version of themselves, making for not only infinite combinations, but infinite possibilities.
It’s a place that’ll have you asking, “Wait, WPI’s got what?”
Well, we can’t wait for you to find out.
Tech might be in our name, but it’s far from our only expertise.
A Customizable Education from Day One
Setting Sights on Success from Day One
WPI is a special place. It’s somewhere STEM blends with music, art, and design thinking to create long-lasting impact, the kind of impact that has students working to reach their own stars from day one. Students’ academic pursuits and goals—from conducting groundbreaking lab work and publishing research papers to building the next big thing in robotics—take center stage here.
Students also regularly combine their love of science with their passion for another field, from psychology and professional writing to environmental studies, making for an academic experience that’s not only interdisciplinary, but where student success is the common denominator.

On the Count of Three: Music at WPI
Music is just as prevalent here at WPI as, well, STEM itself. Whether you’re a seasoned performer or have a passing interest in music and performance, you’ll be able to explore your passion for music through minors, music ensembles, courses, research projects, master classes and performance opportunities with world-renowned musicians, and more.
And this is just the beginning—after all, what’s a great song without an even better hook? See more about how students make music come to life on Boynton Hill.
WPI's Got What? Let Us Show You.
Classrooms and labs aren't the only places WPI students push the envelope—there are hundreds of opportunities (literally; we’ve got 235+ student clubs and organizations to choose from) for them to explore hobbies new and old. So, where should we start: the Society of Magicians, the Cheese Club, or the underwater hockey team?
Life After WPI
Just like every student’s WPI experience is different, so is their career after college. They may follow different paths, but whether they’re using their chemical engineering skills to build a better chocolate bar or aiming to use their degrees in civil engineering and environmental and sustainability studies to address climate change, their talents, expertise, and experiences are changing the world—and themselves.
WPI is many things to many people, but the real question is: what will it be to you? We're here to help you find out. Check out the links below for more.
