Career Development Center

WPI’s Career Development Center (CDC) offers extensive career services to help undergraduate students, graduate students, and alumni to identify and achieve their career goals. The CDC also works closely with employers and corporate partners, over 400 of whom recruit on campus each year, to help them find WPI students for full-time, part-time, summer internship, or co-op positions.

Voted #5 for "Best Career Services" by the Princeton Review (2019), the CDC offers personalized service to help students and alumni explore their interests and assess their skills and values to make smart decisions related to their majors and careers.

Each year, the CDC hosts a wide variety of events—including career fairs, workshops, meetings with potential employers, and mock interviews—to give students and alumni the edge they need to succeed upon graduation.
