PracticePoint is a natural fit for engineering students, but it’s also a place for students and faculty from other disciplines.

Data science and data visualization students can uncover new ways of presenting patient data; robotics students can design, build, and test new technology; neuroscience students can assess patients’ mental efforts; business students can study user experiences; students at the HealthCare Delivery Institute can develop apps; and cybersecurity students can test device cyber safety.

WPI's motto is Lehr und Kunst, theory and practice. And that’s really what PracticePoint is all about.
