Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – October 3, 2016
The other grad students are helpful and not cut throat making it a great place to learn. It is still a program trying to find its feet so it is more suited to independent and self motivated graduate students. Despite its small size we have extensive instrumentation and anything we don't have Umass med does.
Great for the independent learning
Not many classes for grad students so if you feel behind in theory won't make it up here
Peer Learning Assistant (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – October 20, 2016
Generally, if your professor is clear about what the assignments are, you'll be ok. The two professors I worked with often neglected to provide grading rubrics for the assignments we were supposed to be grading and often gave writing assignments so vague that the we couldn't help the students figure it out because we didn't even know.
Graduate Secretary (Former Employee) – Worcester, MA – April 20, 2016
WPI is a good place to begin a career. I didnt find the people all that friendly and helpful. However, when my mom was dying I had a great boss at the time who was very understanding. When he left I felt that the new chair of the department was insulting.
Hard Working University with Tremendous Opportunities
Peer Learning Assistant for Biomedical Engineering (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – January 14, 2016
WPI is a very project based university, which requires its students to work with other in almost every class. The professors are also extremely helpful and ensure students are pushing themselves to the best of their abilities.
Working at WPI over the summer was a very supportive atmosphere with both professors and graduate students guiding my project towards success. They also gave me a lot of responsibilities, which allowed me to become a lot more confident in lab settings.

Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – September 29, 2014
A typical day at work is doing research or reading references in the lab. After mathematical derivations, we can do numerical simulations base on R or Python to verify your intuition or idea. The environment is free and every one in the lab is self-paced and self-motivating. The hardest part is to explore the working principles and natures behind the math equations or the analysis results. And for me, this is also the most enjoyable of the job at the same time.

Research Assistant (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – June 25, 2012
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.

Martial Art teacher (Capoeira) (Current Employee) – Worcester, MA – February 15, 2015
A typical day at work it is awesome. I learned that it is very important to work in group and each student are different from each other. The hardest part of the job is when the students miss the class. The most enjoyable part of this job is see the students enjoying the class and always asking for more.
