Dr. Jessica Rosewitz brings to WPI a wealth of past WPI experiences, teaching and project advising, industry and community engagement, a passion for WPI’s project-based education, and focus on continual improvement of engineering education at all levels. Her P.E. license and experience in Accelerated Bridge Construction enables her to draw upon regional engineering firms, and her dedication to early engineering education drives her outreach with local vocational schools, community organizations, and pre-K-12 programs. Her goal is to provide an outstanding classroom education and opportunities to solidify understanding of theory with visits to local construction sites and plants. Her experience allows her to develop advanced IQP and MQP opportunities for design and research with local companies, having researched self-activated healing concrete and participated in the NSF iCorps program. She founded the student chapter of the Associated General Contractors (AGC) at WPI and has guided students in the ASCE/AISC steel bridge team, and hosts the AR Sandbox exhibit at the annual Touch Tomorrow event. Dr. Rosewitz also coordinates the Early Research Experience in E-Term (EREE) program for the Office of Undergraduate Research.
