Pros: supportive environment, teamwork, fosters originality and creativity
Cons: it is quite clearly an academic institution.
Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) is an excellent school for a motivated individual who would like to develop an education in creating useful technology. With a strong focus on entrepreneurial spirit, potential students will almost always be able to find a faculty backer for a project they are passionate about it. At WPI, you find the rare situation where hard work, intelligence and skill are rewarded with the support they deserve rather than a largely political game.
