Prof. Rong organized a MQP in China get together. More than 20 WPI students attained the gathering, including students going to China for doing senior projects (MQP) and students did the projects last year. Some former MQP in China students shared the information of the China and project experience with new members during the gathering. The plan for 2014 was also discussed during the event. All the students enjoyed the Chinese food was served on the gathering.


There will be 15 WPI students going to China for their senior projects in summer (E term) and fall (B term) of 2014. More than 20 selected students from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) and Shanghai University (SU) will work with them as team partners on eight projects (three in summer and five in fall) sponsored by global companies with China operations such as Caterpillar, Timken, Johnson Control, and Saint Gobain.
There are five exchange students from Huazhong University of Science and Technology (HUST) coming to WPI for their senior projects in D term, 2014 (March to May). The projects are sponsored by Amphenol TCS, Nashua, NH.
