Each fall, the WPI Global Fair gives eager undergraduate students a chance to learn more about the many off-campus project experiences available. This year’s fair is gearing up to be the largest event yet, as representatives will showcase more than 45 project centers—including three new locations—at the Sports and Recreation Center on Sept. 2, from 3 to 5:30 p.m.
More than 800 students are expected to attend the fair, where project center directors and some of their former project center students will be stationed at tables filled with information about diverse IQP, MQP, and HUA project opportunities.
Important topics will be presented, such as project costs, financial aid, project availability, and travel abroad requirements. But it’s not all about logistics—representatives will also discuss the unique aspects of their project center locations, from language requirements to significant historical and cultural traditions.
