Founded in Worcester, Mass., in 1865, WPI is a global leader in project-based learning. As one of the nation's earliest technological universities, we've always taken a distinctive approach to science and technology education. WPI?s approach is hands-on, so students learn in the classroom and then apply that knowledge to real-world problems. The project approach emphasizes effective teamwork that relies on many perspectives. Because of this students emerge ready to take on some of the most difficult and interdisciplinary challenges in science and technology. WPI's academic departments offer more than 50 bachelor?s. master?s, and doctoral degree programs in science, engineering, technology, management, the social sciences, and the humanities and arts. Our world-class faculty work with students in a number of cutting-edge research areas, leading to breakthroughs and innovations in such fields as biotechnology, fuel cells, nanotechnology, and information security. Through our innovative Global Projects Program, students tackle complex problems in one of 50+ WPI project centers throughout the Americas, Africa, Australia, Asia, and Europe. As a highly regarded institution, WPI is ranked No. 5 for Best Run Colleges and No. 6 Best Career Placement by Princeton Review (2019), Top 25 Stem Colleges by Forbes (2018); and #25 for Best Online MBA Programs by U.S. News & World Report (2019). WPI was also honored to receive the National Academy of Engineering?s prestigious Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education in 2016. The WPI community is active and diverse. Students participate in 235+ extracurricular activities, including music, theatre, and Greek organizations, 20 varsity sports teams, and 41 club and intramural sports. There are also fun campus-wide annual events, including Homecoming, Winter Ball, and QuadFest. WPI's 95-acre traditional, New England campus is set on a hilltop in a residential neighborhood of Worcester. The city is home to 9 colleges (and over 36,000 college students), and has several museums, music and theatre performance centers, an arena for concerts and sporting events, and lots of restaurants, entertainment venues, and shopping centers. Commuter rail service offers students easy access to all that Boston has to offer.
