WPI Plans for Fall Opening Latest Information

Chloe A.

Senior, BS in Electrical & Computer Engineering

For Chloe, WPI has been an enlightening experience. “Hands-on experience is the best,” she says, “being able to work in the labs and actually see things work as they’re supposed to. All of the professors are very smart and helpful.”

Through WPI’s Global Projects Program, which offers students the opportunity to conduct their research and projects at one of our 50+ global projects sites, Chloe had the unique opportunity of completing her Interactive Qualifying Project entitled, "Developing a Reinvestment System for Sustainable Initiatives," by creating a business plan for a cargo company in Monteverde, Costa Rica. For her Major Qualifying Project, Chloe has proudly designed a self-playing bass guitar circuit board designed for people with Muscular Dystrophy. The project entitled “Assistive Bass Guitar” has been extremely rewarding.

WPI has also allowed Chloe to grow and find her own voice in a male-dominated field. As a new student, Chloe found it challenging to speak up with an idea and found it hard to be heard sometimes. Supportive faculty, such as Professor Ulkuhan Guler, has been a big help in guiding her through her WPI career and opening up. As a woman, she says, “it’s important to take ownership for the work you’ve done and speaking up for yourself.” Chloe has a bright future ahead. She has been offered a job at Allegro and will be specializing in drivers and analog integrated circuits.
