A Message from the Office of Undergraduate Research
Research, discovery, design, and innovation are core to the undergraduate experience at WPI.
As we celebrate 50 years of the WPI Plan, the Office of Undergraduate Research is pleased to showcase
the work of our students and their advisors. All students were invited to communicate their work and
share it with the larger community using slides and videos that they have created. You will see
presentations by individuals and by student teams from almost all majors offered at WPI. You will hear
seniors talking about their Major Qualifying Projects and you will also see work by some of our more
junior students. Above all, you will see Lehr und Kunst – Theory and Practice – on display.
D 2020 has been a very special term and it is not too soon to say that it will be one for the history
books. Members of the WPI community have had to be physically distant from each other but we hope that
the sights, sounds, and substance of what our students are sharing in the Virtual Undergraduate Research
Showcase D2020 serve to connect us together in proud celebration.
We miss all of our students and we especially dedicate this site, with love, to the class of 2020!
