    of knowledge to gain a mature understanding of
    themselves and, most importantly, to form a deep
    appreciation of the interrelationships among
    basic knowledge, technological advance, and human
    need. These principles are today manifest in the
    WPI Plan, a unique, project-oriented program
    which emphasizes intensive learning experiences
    and direct application of knowledge. WPI remains
