In August of 2018, WPI will open the Foisie Innovation Studio and Messenger Residence Hall, the future hub of WPI’s distinctive project-based approach to STEM (science, technology, engineering, and math) higher education, and our first formal living/learning facility. The 78,000-square-foot building will guarantee that future generations of students have the physical space in which to immerse themselves in WPI’s distinctive brand of learning.
