Undergraduate Research Projects Showcase (formerly Project Presentation Day)

Students at Project Presentation Day

A CELEBRATION OF ALL SENIOR STUDENTS' RESEARCH, DESIGN, AND CREATIVE THESES

WPI’s annual Undergraduate Research Projects Showcase (formerly Project Presentation Day) celebrates every senior student’s thesis. Classes are cancelled during the showcase so the entire community can appreciate the breadth and depth of undergraduate research activities—and their potential to change the world.  Project sponsors, whether private corporations or public institutions, attend the event to celebrate the remarkable outcomes of students’ major-specific research, design, and creative projects. The public is also welcome to join and learn more about the projects, which mirror the kinds of professional work students will tackle in their careers.
A capstone in the university’s distinctive WPI undergraduate curriculum, the WPI senior thesis—the Major Qualifying Project (MQP)—is one of three significant projects required to graduate, and the culmination of a project-based educational experience that prepares students for success both in their first destination after WPI and their career moves across their lives.
The 2024 Undergraduate Research Projects Showcase is being held on Friday, April 19. The schedule will be posted soon.
