Joining the Herd

Learn from those who have paved the way before you. Then make your own breakthroughs.

WPI’s faculty members are experts in their fields, and they’re driven to help you succeed.

As a graduate student here, your work and your perspective bring new ideas to WPI. The close bonds you’ll form with faculty members help you grow personally and professionally. Working alongside faculty who have real-world experience and academic knowledge, our graduate students often say their WPI mentors gave them help with everything from research experience to persevering through tough times.

Making the Connections

Graduate students are considered peers and valuable collaborators at WPI, and the partnership you’ll have with faculty members elevates the work you do. You’ll work side-by-side in labs and on projects—receiving guidance while also having an opportunity to make your own discoveries in the areas that interest you most.

Long after you’ve earned your degree, the relationships you develop stay with you your whole life.

“I have been lucky enough to have two co-advisors who do not only care about the research and publishing papers, but care about me – as an individual. They both tailor their mentor style to what I need the most, are willing to sit down with me to discuss things outside of research like future career goals and will keep those goals in mind when they recommend projects and experiences. My advisors care about me as a person and want me to succeed in what I want to do.”
