Worcester Polytechnic Institute Students From Salem Return from Intensive Research Projects

submitted by Worcester Polytechnic Institute The following Salem residents were among 142 students from

Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) who recently completed an intense, hands-on research project. Valerie Boutin is a junior majoring in Mechanical Engineering who completed a project in Namibia. The project was titled Support to Rural Communities for Improved Water and Sanitation Systems. Richard Brown is a junior majoring in Computer Science who

completed a project in Namibia. The project was titled Tsumkwe / CBEND Technical Evaluation. At WPI, all undergraduates are required to complete a research-

driven, professional-level project that applies science and technology to addresses an important societal need or issue. About two-thirds of students complete a project at one of the university’s 26 off- campus project centers, which are located around the world. A signature element of the innovative undergraduate experience at WPI, the project-based curriculum offers students the opportunity to apply their scientific and technical knowledge to develop thoughtful solutions to real problems that affect the quality of people’s lives-and make a difference before they graduate. “The WPI project- based curriculum’s focus on global studies brings students out of the classroom and their comfort zones and into the global community to apply their knowledge to solve real problems,” said Professor Richard Vaz, dean of the WPI Interdisciplinary and Global Studies Division. “Students are immersed in all aspects of a different culture, from the way people live and work to the values they hold to the foods they eat-all valuable perspectives for surviving and thriving in today’s global marketplace. They also learn the meaning and magic of teamwork; make a real and meaningful difference in their host community; and gain a competitive edge for any résumé, or graduate or professional school application.”
