At WPI, students learn best by putting their hands and minds to work through making, building, designing, and creating. Projects are at the heart of the university’s curriculum, and are often completed at one of our off-campus project center locations.
Our Global Projects Program immerses students in communities as close as our home city of Worcester and at more than 40 other locations worldwide. Students work in teams with a faculty advisor and are accountable to a project sponsor on a specific problem that connects science or technology with social issues and human needs.
In addition to projects you’ll complete as part of your courses, as an IMGD student you could also work on projects, such as these:
- Creating audio cues to help the visually impaired
- Designing an iPad game that helps elementary students learn to spell
- Developing a learning game to teach users how to write in Japanese
