Provost's MQP Awards

The Provost’s MQP Awards recognize teams of students who have completed exemplary academic projects. Winners are chosen in each department through a competition process, which reflects the true depth and breadth of academic opportunity at WPI. The MQP (Major Qualifying Project) is one of the university’s distinctions in its project-based learning curriculum. All seniors complete an MQP, a professional-level research project in their major discipline. Using the knowledge they have acquired, they apply it to real-world professional problems and scenarios.
