Presentation and Celebration
In 2021, GRIE went virtual with a weeklong event. All graduate students and post doctoral fellows engaged in research or in course- or program-related capstone projects were encouraged to develop a 5 minute presentation and submit it for judge, peer, and faculty review. 63 students advanced to the finals.
On April 6, finalists in the research areas below presented their research during live Zoom presentations. Additionally, Data Science Graduate Qualifying Project Students presented via Zoom on May 7. Presentations were open to teh WPI community and judges.
True to its name, the Graduate Research Innovation Exchange is a marketplace where students across disciplines get to know each other and share discoveries and new ideas. It is also a great way to get feedback on research in-progress—input that can help students prepare for sharing their work down the line through papers and presentations.
Student presenters also receive input from attendees who are able to vote for People's Choice Awards for their favorite presentations.
The best presentations by master's, PhD, and post doctoral fellow candidates engaged in research in the categories of Mathematical, Chemical, and Physical Sciences; Business and Social Science; Data Science, Cybersecurity, and Computer Science; Life Sciences and Bioengineering; Robotics, Cyberphysical Systems, Electrical and Computer Engineering; Chemical Engineering and Material Sciences; and Aerospace, Manufacturing, Mechanical, Civil and Environmental, Fire-Protection Engineering are invited to present in the finals. Winners from the finals round will receive cash prizes.
