Diane Strong, department head and professor of information technology and data science, spoke with Diversity in Action magazine about WPI's revised Master's in Information Technology program. (pg. 70). "Starting at the intersection of technology, business and people, we prepare our students to become leaders, to think simultaneously about what businesses need, how to answer that with innovative tech solutions and then deliver intuitive, easy-to-use products and programs," she said.
Diversity in Action magazine highlighted WPI's new Master of Science program in Neuroscience, which was spearheaded and instituted by Jean King, Peterson Family dean of Arts and Sciences. "The program will provide students with a strong foundation in computational, molecular, psychological, quantitative and interdisciplinary approaches to neuroscience, and is 'just a good blend of all the things that we do readily already, and where neuroscience as a field is emerging and where it is going,'" King said.
WPI’s ongoing efforts to prepare students for an increasingly diverse workforce were highlighted in this Diversity in Action article. “Researchers will teach WPI students how to identify and address bias and work in groups in ways that promote equity,” the article stated.
Emmanuel Agu, professor of computer science, was featured in a profile in Diversity in Action on his road to exploring computer science, and how it landed him a teaching position at WPI. "I found that WPI's philosophy of integrating theory with practice matches the way I approach problems," he said.
