About the Silicon Valley Project Center
Silicon Valley is home to many dynamic companies in the computer industry and related high-tech fields. Students at the Silicon Valley Project Center work with companies such as SRI International, Disney Interactive, NVIDIA, and others.
In recent years, WPI students have completed projects developing a hypervisor that can run Windows with a minimal loss of performance and no loss of functionality for the NVIDIA Corporation; constructing a simulation of the bi-static satellite-radar system of SRI International’s Radio Aurora eXplorer mission and producing synthetic data; and creating Memory Dash, a multi-player puzzle-based iPhone game that provided entertainment for users and product feedback data for eBay.
