WPI holds two distinct Arts & Sciences Week events every year. These weeks showcase the talents, ideas, and themes that infuse the eight academic departments and ten academic programs in WPI’s School of Arts & Sciences.

But even more, Arts & Sciences weeks are a celebration of the interconnections between the arts and science and engineering, business, and global engagement at WPI. The events, performances, and discussions are a vibrant illustration of how the diverse perspectives, knowledge, and skills of various, creators, scholars, inventors, and responsible global citizens can promote discovery and communication, advance knowledge, and improve the human condition.
