IQP & MQP Projects for WPI Undergraduates

At WPI, all students engage in meaningful, interdisciplinary, project-based learning experiences. In their junior year, students complete an interdepartmental project that is outside their primary area of study. In their senior year, students complete a second project that is within their major. The junior year project is called their Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP), while their senior year project is called their Major Qualifying Project (MQP). Each of these projects is the equivalent of 3 classes. Dr. Heffernan has supervised over 100 students working on these projects.

For the remainder of the 2022-23 academic year and for 2023-24, I have these projects available:
