About Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI)

WPI's innovative curriculum has been widely recognized for its ability to prepare students for success. Small classes, a flexible curriculum, and hands-on project experience are hallmarks of the WPI education. You want to be on the first Mars mission, find alternative energy sources, or cure cancer. WPI wants to help you make an impact. Our students do much more than study science and technology. They delve into the arts and humanities. They complete projects on campus and around the globe, connecting what they've learned in the classroom with pressing real-life challenges—from health to the environment to global competitiveness. Students grow personally, professionally, and intellectually as they discover how to apply their talents and turn ideas into tangible solutions.
