U.S. Army Natick Soldier Research, Development & Engineering Center
With over twenty years of collaboration, WPI and the Natick Soldier RD&E Center (NSRDEC) signed an agreement that will carry on with research projects in the areas of fire protection, data security, chemical engineering, and robotics. Working with the Center allows WPI to form intensive research teams around problems and challenges that need solving. The ultimate goal is to improve the lives of soldiers.
WPI academic scholarship in engineering and applied science and pragmatic inventive activity are highly integrated throughout the university. This practical tradition originates from a strong history of cross and interdisciplinary research, industrial associations, and applications with other like-minded institutions. The university offers a variety of available technologies.
