About Us

Renowned for the amount of cross-disciplinary opportunity it provides to undergraduates, WPI provides a similar experience to summer program participants.

As such, students “major” in a computer science or engineering-focused area and “minor” in the arts or humanities. For example, in addition to selecting Computer Science: Possibilities in Programming as their major, students can choose from Cinematic Storytelling, Music, or Psychology, among others, as their minor.

Computer Science: Possibilities in Programming is perfect for beginners. Since it is self-paced, it’s also perfect for independent learners. Students focus on how programming applies to internet applications and object-oriented languages. Consequently, they dive into topics like HTML, JavaScript, and networking, to name a few. Moreover, students have the opportunity to pursue their topics of interest–instructors tailor the class to student wants and needs.

Outside of academics, students spend time with peers and attend social activities (like kickboxing, trivia, and movie nights). They also take part in college preparation workshops. To apply to these well-regarded computer science summer programs, students must submit a short essay, activities list, transcripts, and recommendations.
