We are proud to call Worcester Polytechnic Institute our home. Founded in 1865 on the principle that students learn most effectively by applying the theory learned in the classroom to the practice of solving real-world problems.

Our research is made possible by the National Science Foundation.

NSF-CBET-2045621

As a part of the Brandies Bioinspired Materials Research Science and Engineering Center we are connected with a powerful community of  scientists from across the country dedicated to advancing the field of soft matter.
