Technology Highways and Academic Byways
As the economic center of Massachusetts and New England, MetroWest offers America and the world an unparalleled set of technological and academic resources.
Along the intersecting enterprise zones of Routes 9 and 495 (both readily accessible from the Massachusetts Turnpike and just minutes from Logan International Airport via the Harbor Tunnel) lie world technology leaders like Mathworks, Cognex and Boston Scientific, in Natick.
In nearby Framingham, Bose Corporation and Genzyme have created a major enterprise zone. Further west along Rt. 495 over a dozen major computer firms, including Hewlett-Packard and Oracle have created major campus facilities. They’re easily accessible by car or bus and supported by all the attractive amenities of MetroWest.
Elsewhere in the region, top-flight institutions of higher learning include a host of colleges and universities with special strength in business, engineering and education. Whether you plan to advance your own professional education in MetroWest or ensure your children receive a top-flight learning experience, you’ll find a host of options at institutions within or adjacent to the region.
Brandeis University, Olin College and Babson College are nearby, as are Regis College and any number of fine preparatory schools. Within MetroWest, Framingham State University and the Tufts School of Veterinary Medicine in Westboro offer diverse learning opportunities—perhaps even for you!
