Worcester Polytechnic Institute
Since its founding in 1865, WPI has called Worcester, Massachusetts, home. Located in the heart of New England, WPI’s urban campus (students call it The Hill) encompasses nearly 100 acres in the region’s second-largest city. As a global leader in project-based learning, the university offers a personalized, cross-cutting educational approach—one that is deeply committed to research with purpose. Collaborations throughout our 50+ graduate programs extend across WPI’s four schools—The Global School, School of Engineering, School of Arts & Sciences, and The Business School—to facilitate and nurture a strong focus on innovation, exploration, and real-world competency. Working together, we strive to meet tomorrow’s complex global technological and societal challenges. Whether in a research lab on campus or in an online classroom, you’ll explore new ideas, find a community that inspires you, and solve real-world problems that will change lives—including yours.
