Student & Graduate Reviews (5)
Overall, WPI is an OK school. If you want to go here for IMGD, you are better off burning all of your money than going here as that would save you 4 years. This program is a mess. The classes don't teach what they need to, there aren't enough resources for the small number of students they have, and most of the professors act like children who have been given too much power. On multiple occasions I have heard professors s**t talking students to other students and bully students with mental disabilities. This program consistently made me uncomfortable and has been the worst time of my life.
The school's education is very high quality but is going down hill because of the limited amount of faculty in the department. The school needs to spend more to get more professors to teach, or students will not revive enough individual attention. The lab courses do not have the resources to accommodate the number of students who want to take them.
Nice small school, looks good on a resume, easy access to professors, very active greek life
WPI is one of the best investments you can make! The tuition may be expensive, but nearly all WPI graduates obtain jobs right after commencement and/or place in top graduate school programs. You'll have those loans paid back fairly quickly and engineering is a profession of high-demand.
Excellent education, interesting culture, with a small and close knit community and campus
