Worcester Polytechnic Institute Overview

The Worcester Polytechnic Institute (also called WPI) is a private university based in the city of Worcester, Massachusetts. Worcester is part of a relatively small group of polytechnic universities, which are institutions of higher learning that place a strong focus on mathematics, technology, engineering and science. WPI was founded 1865 by John Boyton and Ichabod Washburn. The school would blend theory that was taught in classes with practical experience that could be done in the shops.

WPI is currently offering majors in science, engineering, management, social science and liberal arts. Unlike the majority of universities in the United States, WPI doesn't combine related departments into different colleges or schools. The institute has a very good reputation in the field of engineering and has consistently ranked as being one of the best schools in North America. As of 2012, there were 3,537 undergraduate and 1,534 postgraduate students attending.
