Keith G.

Senior, BS in Biomedical Engineering & Mechanical Engineering

Keith knows the benefits of having encouraging faculty around at WPI – he would not be where he is today without the help of his mentor, Professor Gaudette in the Department of Biomedical Engineering. Professor Gaudette helped Keith make his double major work, allowed him to volunteer in his lab, and was his Major Qualifying Project advisor for his papillary muscle repositioning device. He also allowed Keith to represent WPI at the Innovation Encounter at Lawrence Technological University in Detroit, Michigan, through the KEEN Initiative.

In part because of Professor Gaudette’s mentorship and support, Keith has been accepted into the Master in Mechanics and Design program at Northeastern University in Boston where he will continue his path to success.

I would not trade my experience at WPI for anything!
Definitely don’t be afraid of trying new things. WPI has so many opportunities available, so talking and getting to know professors will make your experience more enjoyable.
