Beijing, the capital of P.R. China, is a modern, industrialized metropolitan with rich cultural heritage and easy access to other major cities by train or airplane. The Beijing Project Center, established in 2015, offers real-world project experiences for students to simultaneously practice their technical skills, apply their innovative ideas, develop their interpersonal abilities, and cultivate their entrepreneurial spirit in a global and innovative world. In particular, WPI students will work in teams with students from Beijing University of Chemical Technology (BUCT).

Past Beijing MQP students have:

•Developed an infrared drying unit to increase energy efficiency in the production of aluminum cans.

•Designed a robotic arm to sort, stack and move scrap metal for recycling.

•Devised a smart kitchen fire alarming device.
