What makes the off-campus project-based experience at WPI different from a typical study abroad program elsewhere?


Seth Tuler: Unlike program participants at other universities, WPI students aren't studying in a classroom. They're working for government agencies or nongovernmental organizations in a workplace environment. It's also different than an internship in that the students are not being told what to do. They have to figure out what they're doing—it's really their project.
