Upon graduation, many students enter the workforce or decide to pursue graduate or professional school. The Career Development Center (CDC) has a variety of resources to help you research and decide if graduate or professional school is the right next step for you.

After graduation, many WPI students go on to pursue advanced degrees—from the class of 2019,  a reported 23.8% of graduating undergraduate students and 10.9% of graduate students enrolled in graduate studies. Some of the graduate schools where WPI students have been accepted:

  • Boston University
  • Carnegie Mellon University
  • Cornell University
  • Dartmouth University
  • Georgia Institute of Technology
  • Johns Hopkins University
  • Massachusetts Institute of Technology
  • Purdue University
  • Stanford University
  • University of Massachusetts Medical School
  • University of California-Berkeley
  • WPI

If you’re thinking about attending graduate school, the CDC can help you sort through the facts, finances, and timelines to make sure you’re prepared before you apply.
