WPI’s reputation as a rigorous and innovative university rests on the shoulders of its faculty. A highly selective, private technological university and one of the nation’s first, WPI believes that when great minds work together, great advances follow. At WPI the boundaries to multidisciplinary collaboration are low—faculty members, students, and other partners work together on the real-world projects and purposeful research that are hallmarks of the WPI experience. We are most proud of a recent No. 1 ranking for “faculty who best combine research and teaching.” (Wall Street Journal/Times Higher Ed, 2016) The university’s campus is located (one hour west of Boston) in Worcester, Massachusetts, a thriving 21st century college city recognized as a growing hub of scientific and technological innovation.
The Mathematical Sciences Department currently has 30 tenured/tenure-track faculty members, 6 postdoctoral scholars, and features an active Ph.D. program in Mathematical Sciences. The department offers bachelor’s degrees in Mathematical Sciences and in Actuarial Mathematics, and master’s degrees in Applied Statistics, Applied Mathematics, Financial Mathematics, and Industrial Mathematics (seehttp://www.wpi.edu/+math). The department has a strong reputation for its cutting-edge interdisciplinary research and for its successful programs addressing mathematical and statistical problems in industry.
Located in the heart of New England, WPI is surrounded by cultural and recreational opportunities. The UMass Medical Center, a large number of technology companies and many colleges and universities are located in the immediate area making it ideal for two career families.
