Theory. Practice. Impact.
At WPI, students are involved in engineering projects and research from the very beginning. Our pioneering project-based learning approach means our undergraduate and graduate students learn in the classroom and then can immediately apply their skills to solve real-world problems.
Students work alongside our world-renowned faculty, many of whom bring invaluable industry experience to their work. WPI graduates become proficient and agile engineers able to adapt to a constantly changing global environment. They’re prepared to collaborate with peers across disciplines—from engineering to the arts and sciences to business—to develop innovative and effective solutions to the world’s most pressing challenges.
This groundbreaking approach establishes a foundation for career success and life satisfaction.

Scenes from the ASEE-NE Conference
This fall welcomed engineering educators and students from 28 different schools to WPI’s campus as host of the American Society for Engineering Education – Northeast Section (ASEE-NE) regional conference. Over three days, nearly 140 college faculty, staff, and student participants from around the region joined workshops, poster presentations, research paper sessions, and lightning talks. Keynote speakers were Dr. Pamela McCauley from NCSU, who spoke on the role of faculty as mentors and allies to foster success for students from underrepresented groups, and singer-songwriter and Berklee College of Music professor Livingston Taylor, who reflected on the similarity between a performer connecting with, and caring for, an audience--and an educator connecting with, and caring for, their students.
