At WPI, where theory and practice are balanced, Industrial Engineering (IE) students have helped solve problems confronted by companies through their Major Qualifying Projects (MQP), giving them real- world experience.  For organizations that are interested in sponsoring projects, please check out our one-page project information flyer.  For students that want to know how to conduct an IE MQP and associated requirements, please refer to our IE MQP syllabus

Over the years, our project sponsors have converged into three categories – financial services, supply chain, operations and manufacturing, and healthcare and hospitals. These industries also represent the major employers for WPI’s IE majors. See the sample of MQP projects with industry sponsors:

Financial Services

Supply Chain, Operations, Manufacturing

Healthcare and Hospitals
