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.
