Academic Projects at WPI
Project activity is an integral part of the educational experience for all students under the WPI Plan. Each project runs the equivalent of three full-time courses. The two types of qualifying projects are:
- Major Qualifying Project (MQP) - The MQP is a project in the major field of study. It focuses on the synthesis of all previous study to solve problems or perform tasks in the major field with confidence, and communicate the results effectively.
- Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP) - The IQP relates technology and science to society or human needs. This project challenges students to relate social needs or concerns to specific issues raised by technological developments.
