Bangkok BridgeBangkok, Thailand


Location

Situated in the heart of Southeast Asia, Thailand is an intensely beautiful country: a land of gilded temples, outdoor markets, and golden beaches.

Students at the Bangkok Project Center have a unique opportunity to become acquainted with the people of Thailand and address some of the challenges common to developing nations by working on a variety of social and environmental projects. Thai people are among the friendliest and most hospitable in the world and have a great talent for enjoying life. 

Accommodations near the prestigious Chulalongkorn University in the heart of Bangkok enable students to explore the city's many attractions.



Projects

WPI students work in multicultural teams with students from Chulalongkorn University on projects proposed by local nonprofit organizations, universities, and governmental and non-governmental organizations. Projects take place in the city of Bangkok and surrounding rural areas, with many focusing on underserved communities.
