GRIE Poster Celebration 2017

February 17, 2017

Earlier this year, on February 8, close to 170 master's and PhD candidates shared their innovative and purposeful research with the WPI community at the 2017 Graduate Research Innovation Exchange (GRIE) poster celebration. It was an exciting and well-attended event that had the Rubin Campus Center Odeum buzzing with activity and engaged conversation.

During the day, judges visited all of the participants, evaluating their posters and learning more about their work. They selected 69 PhD and MS candidates as finalists, representing the following six categories: Arts & Sciences, Business and Social Science, Data Science & Cybersecurity, Engineering, Life Sciences and Bioengineering, and Robotics & Cyberphysical Systems.

The Manufacturing Engineering program together with the Materials Science & Engineering program are proud to announce 7 of it's students that were chosen as finalists and congratulate everyone from the programs who participated. 

The finalists are

On April 11, the finalists will vie for a cash prize as they present to a panel of entrepreneurial experts. We wish them the best of luck.
