Major Qualifying Project (MQP)
As part of WPI’s project-based learning model, every undergraduate completes a Major Qualifying Project (MQP), a culminating experience that enables students to synthesize their learning and tackle real-world problems in their fields of study. For students of IMGD, the MQP is an opportunity to showcase their talents and add another impressive piece to their portfolios. Many students build game prototypes, while others create interactive art exhibits, game development tools, and other forms of media.
But most importantly, we want your MQP to be something that you’re passionate about! Got an awesome idea for that game you’ve always wanted to make? Present your idea at our IMGD MQP Pitch Event and make it a reality! Interested in traveling abroad? Complete your MQP at one of our project centers in Osaka or Kyoto, Japan or with our international partners from New Zealand and Australia (reach out to Jennifer deWinter for more information about abroad MQP opportunities). Want to get a head start on your career? Consider completing your MQP under the guidance of one of our many student sponsors, such as Disney International and eBay, and your MQP might just turn into a job offer! With IMGD, you have the flexibility to do what YOU want for your MQP.
