The Pioneer Valley Economic Development Project Center is based in the offices of Sweeney Strategic Consulting in the Business Growth Center, a small business innovation ecosystem, at the Springfield Technology Park in Springfield, MA. The Technology Park is situated in a unique historic setting on the grounds of the former Springfield Armory, which was established by George Washington in 1777 during the Revolutionary War. Today, the Technology Park is a 15.3 acre sire, which provides attractive work environments for technology-based and other firms. The campus-like facility houses impressive technology assets, and it shares the Armory grounds with Springfield Technical Community College, where students have access to the College's resources just steps away.

WPI is committed to the health, safety, and security of all students who participate in our programs. While off-campus study can present unique challenges and inherent risks, we believe that careful research and diligent planning are keys to a safe and rewarding project experience. WPI utilizes several key resources to understand the risks of travel in the countries where we operate, and we urge you to consult these same resources as you research your intended destination. You can also discuss questions and concerns about your travel plans with on-campus resources such as the IGSD, the Student Health Center, the Office of Disability Services, and the Student Development and Counseling Center. It very important that you consider your own health requirements as you review what sites are most interesting to you.
