Unique Opportunities and Personal Rewards that Last a Lifetime
In administering two vital components of the complete WPI education experience, IGSD helps prepare students for life. The rewards they reap though their Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP) efforts and the Global Projects Program (GPP) deliver many long-lasting and valuable benefits. Project work helps each student become a stronger collaborator—which is essential to performing effectively in the workplace. Critical thinking, public speaking, and communication skills are sharpened. And while certainly vital to success at WPI, these abilities also distinguish students throughout their careers.
Apart from projects, students also turn to IGSD for guidance in putting together an Individually Designed Major —a custom degree program that can incorporate diverse combinations of technical and non-technical study.
