What Students Are Saying

4.00 Average Rating
if an engineering degree is what you desire, wpi is the place to go. excellent academics and highly accredited programs. an emphasis on projects and hands-on learning provides real-life experience and preparation.
Tori from Jefferson Hills, PA
A small, tightly knit, friendly school packed full of a wide variety of clubs and activities for everyone to feel like they are at home. Classes can be larger for broad beginner classes, but teachers are very encouraging and helpful outside of the classroom. There are many resources that you can reach out to for scholarly success such as Tutors and Math And Science Help (MASH).
