Project Presentation Day Includes Presentations in Every Academic Department

What:

The day set aside each year to showcase the work WPI students do for their Major Projects, one of three projects all WPI students must complete. More than 250 student project teams, representing every academic discipline, including Interactive Media & Game Development and Professional Writing, will describe the results of their projects to their faculty advisors and project sponsors in formal presentations or poster sessions.

Major Projects are professional-level design or research experiences that immerse students in the kind of work they will do after graduation. In their presentations, students explain how they arrived at solutions to real-world problems using knowledge and skills they gained at WPI. It's a fascinating and powerful demonstration of the value of WPI’s innovative approach to education.
