Reisya I.

MS, Materials Science and Engineering

As a Fulbright scholar at WPI, Reisya enjoys all the benefits of studying a subject she is passionate about with dedicated colleagues and in labs with cutting-edge equipment.

She dives deep into her master’s degree studies in materials science and engineering and explores research in the nanoenergy lab on developments in clean energy and manufacturing. With the distinctive project work so fundamental at WPI, she applies what she learns to problems that exist in the real world. Eventually, she would like to help build a materials science department at her alma mater—the University of North Sumatera, Medan, Indonesia.

Away from the labs, Reisya’s involved with the Materials Research Society and Material Advantage. She is happy to experience WPI’s cultural events where she learns about diverse cultures and even samples some different foods. She appreciates the friendships she has developed with other students who come from all corners of the globe.

My advice: If you are passionate about science and engineering, WPI is one of the best options out there.
Through my class projects, I have learned a lot about the real problems in industry, and it drives me to think professionally about a case or problem.
