Lincoln Laboratory provides a new round of funding to support student researchers
Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) and MIT Lincoln Laboratory have a long and fruitful history together, including Lincoln Laboratory's ongoing sponsorship of Major Qualifying Projects (MQPs), grants awarded to WPI researchers, and the hiring of WPI alums. A new round of $100,000 in funding for 2023 will allow WPI students to continue and complete sponsored research projects and internships this summer.
"WPI's work with Lincoln Lab provides the opportunity for WPI students to supplement their classes and lab work on campus with summer internships that allow them to expand and grow, and become the next generation of technological leaders, innovators, and problem solvers in the wireless domain, especially with technologies such as 5G and 6G," said Alex Wyglinksi, associate dean of graduate studies and professor of electrical and computer engineering, who has led WPI's partnership with Lincoln Laboratory since 2011. "It's a win-win-win relationship — for WPI, the students, and for Lincoln Lab."
