MQPs give WPI students advanced experience in their field so when they enter the job market or apply to grad school, that work history is valuable in many ways. The individual projects are ambitious and require a substantial time commitment. The MQP culminates with the presentation of a project report and poster on the campus-wide Project Presentation Day in April.
Recent MQPs in the Social Science & Policy Studies Department:
- Green space design for Ågadeparken: a pilot project for daylighting Ladegårdsåen
