Student Projects

Student Design Projects Description

All WPI students complete a 9 credit-hour senior project in the major field. These projects are not part of a course, but rather are independently conducted under faculty direction by small teams of students. For most students in engineering programs, this project serves as a capstone design experience. Most projects are done either for external sponsors (corporations or research organizations) or are conducted as part of a faculty research program. Many of the students complete the senior project off-campus in locations including China, France, Ireland, and Canada.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Worcester Polytechnic Institute has been at the forefront of engineering, technology, and science education for 150 years. The nation’s third oldest technological university, it first changed the course of American education by introducing a radical new curriculum in 1865, becoming the first school in America to focus its education on equal parts theory and practice.
WPI led another dramatic shift in education in 1970 when it implemented the renowned WPI Plan, a daring new approach to undergraduate education built around collaborative, team-based global projects that gave students more control over their education, while providing faculty more opportunities to work closely with students, inherently creating a strong focus on innovation, exploration, and real-world competency. Today, WPI’s pioneering approach is widely emulated by science and engineering schools from around the globe.
WPI’s groundbreaking approach to undergraduate education combines theoretical study with hands-on project requirements. This project-based approach gives WPI students the opportunity to gain professional skills, a talent for teamwork, and the confidence to dive right in, no matter the challenge. It’s these skills"real-world experience and the ability to work collaboratively"that set WPI graduates apart from their peers. Not surprisingly, top-tier employers continuously seek out our students because they know they’ll hit the ground running.
The four projects that comprise the WPI Plan and span an undergraduate’s four years include: the Great Problems Seminar, an introduction to university-level research on a theme of global importance; the Humanities & Arts Project which encourages students to find their inner artist, musician, philosopher… on campus or at locations abroad; Interactive Qualifying Project which brings together students from various disciplines who work in teams, either on campus or at one of our 30+ project centers located around the globe to solve problems that matter to real people and real communities; and the discipline specific Major Qualifying Project which provides students graduation the opportunity to gain real-world design or research experience within their major field"developing skills along the way that employers and graduate schools require.
The Engineering degree programs at WPI include all the usual cornerstone disciplines such as Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Electrical & Computer and Mechanical Engineering programs; additionally WPI offers degrees in which we have unique history and strengths such as Aerospace, Architectural, Environmental, and Robotics Engineering. In fact, WPI was the first institution to offer an undergraduate degree in Robotics Engineering and still the only university in the nation with bachelor's, master's, and doctoral programs in Robotics Engineering.
WPI's graduate programs place an important emphasis on meaningful, practical applications of science, technology. Our graduates emerge with the knowledge and skills to pursue exciting careers in a range of fields " from bioinformatics to software engineering to information security to robotics and fire protection engineering. A national doctoral university with a heritage of educational innovation, WPI delivered its first graduate program in 1893. Today the university offers an array of master's and doctoral degree programs in engineering, science, and management, which are pursued, part-time (for practicing professionals) or full-time, on campus and via distance learning, by a diverse population of students from more than 70 nations. These programs include: Aerospace, Biomedical, Chemical, Civil, Construction Project Management, Electrical & Computer, Environmental, Fire Protection, Manufacturing, Materials Process, Materials Science, Mechanical, Power Systems, Robotics and Systems Engineering.

WPI's graduate programs are marked by a high degree of interdisciplinary collaboration. WPI has long been known as a place where ideas, innovation, and discovery freely cross disciplinary boundaries. Increasingly, the collaborative spirit at WPI is being expanded to include exciting academic and research partnerships with industry, government laboratories, and other universities. Our new Life Sciences and Bioengineering Center has been expressly designed to promote research across disciplines and to facilitate external research and development partnerships.

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Admission to WPI is highly selective. Our students are usually ranked within the top ten percent of their high school class, and score between 1210 and 1400 combined (CR+M) on the SAT. WPI likes to see superior scholastic performance in high school math and science courses, but we also seek students with varied interests, as well as scholastic ability - students who enjoy project work but who also enjoy extracurricular activities.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Students apply only to the University. There are no separate Admissions requirements for different departments.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

In addition to the requirements as specified in Admission Information, international applicants must submit the following:

- An official certified record of secondary school work with courses and grades (results) listed
- An explanation of the grading system used and an English translation of any records which are in languages other than English
- If English is not the native language, one of the following must be taken in addition to the exams listed in Admission Information: TOEFL, IELTS, PTE, MELAB, or GCSE
- Financial Documentation: Either the WPI certification of finances document with appropriate signatures and bank verification demonstrating ability to pay the full cost of attendance, OR the International CSS PROFILE indicating expected annual family contribution

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

Same as found in Admission Information.

Residency Requirements

A minimum of 72 credit hours (two years of full-time work) must be completed satisfactorily in residence at WPI.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

WPI's Office of Admissions coordinates the formal evaluation of transfer credit. Courses taken at regionally accredited post-secondary institutions which satisfy a WPI departmental review of course content and level and which are comparable to courses offered at WPI will be granted a credit if a grade "B" or better is achieved.

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.
