Research That Matters

“WPI researchers work in teams across disciplines and around the world to find practical, sustainable, and humane solutions to difficult problems."  

-Bogdan Vernescu, Vice Provost for Research 


WPI faculty and students conduct cutting-edge, interdisciplinary research that addresses the world’s most pressing challenges—from human disease, sustainable development, and climate change to the future of work, clean energy, and materials of the future.


WPI invests in faculty, researchers, and students with training and practice in value creation and innovation to change the world, from Worcester, our home – and beyond. Innovation is a core value at the heart of everything we do.


Students value and benefit from their research experiences as they do from other distinctive elements of a WPI education, including global projects, humanities and arts, and the social sciences. Balancing research with education produces global leaders.
