A message from Danielle Malconian,
Enrollment Specialist at WPI

Hello! My name is Danielle Malconian. I am the point of contact for RTX employees that are interested in joining one of WPI’s graduate programs. Going back to school can be intimidating. There are many factors to take into consideration; time, work, personal life, which degree to pursue… the list goes on. However, furthering your education in order to advance yourself in your career is an important step for your future. WPI graduate programs will offer you that opportunity. WPI and RTX continue to provide tailored graduate programs that enhance students’ skills and competencies for future success with RTX. Our cohort programs allows students to take classes and learn alongside their peers and colleagues while creating a valuable internal network. We provide a dedicated support team to make learning the focus of your education and eliminate all the other factors that can get in the way. If you or any of your peers are interested, please reach out to me with any questions.
