Worcester Polytechnic Institute Graduate Reviews

4 reviews
Worcester polytechnic institute is definitely one of the best schools I ever visit. They don't really have anything to fix except for some independeNt factors that do not benefit the campus. Location, food and some other types of factor do not allow this school to be the best school ever. It is not like you could really change anything since these factors are totally independent from the school.

The school is relatively small but packs a lot of beauty on the campus in terms of history, the buildings, and the foliage. The school has about 400 undergraduates and 2000 graduates and the school is always buzzing. Graduate research is incredible and the global reach that WPI has in regards to projects abroad is astounding and world renown.
There is a plethora of opportunities for students here. You can get work in a research lab, an administration position, or in a club. Every student has to participate in projects, and get good job experience for future jobs.
