Worcester Polytechnic Institute Major Qualifying Project Program
Lincoln Laboratory collaborates with Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) in its Major Qualifying Project (MQP) program, which requires a student to complete an undergraduate project equivalent to a senior thesis. MQP activities encompass research and development, as well as the practical application of principles and technology to real problems.
Students participating in the program spend nine weeks during the fall term working on their projects full time at Lincoln Laboratory. Their work at the Laboratory culminates in a thesis-like document detailing their MQP work, as well as a project presentation before their sponsors, WPI faculty, and the Laboratory community.
Students participating in the MQP at Lincoln Laboratory are typically majoring in aerospace engineering, computer science, electrical and computer engineering, mathematics, mechanical engineering, or physics.
WPI students interested in doing an MQP at Lincoln Laboratory should contact the Interdisciplinary and Global Studies Division.
