Dalton honored as WPI project finalist
WORCESTER — Undergraduate project teams from Worcester Polytechnic Institute were recently honored as finalists of the President’s Interactive Qualifying Project Awards. Caroline Dalton of Holden, class of 2022, majoring in civil engineering, was a member of one team that completed the project “The Role of Wetlands in the Rumahanga Catchment.” Hundreds of IQPs are completed each year by WPI students as part of their graduation requirements. A fraction of those are then submitted to be considered for a President’s IQP Award.
The President’s IQP Awards are given to student teams whose IQP work is determined to be outstanding in its focus on science, technology and society.
The IQP is one of the most distinctive elements of WPI’s project-based curriculum. This nine-credit-hour requirement involves students working in teams, with students not in their major, to tackle an issue that relates science, engineering and technology to society. Sustainability serves as a common theme for IQPs, many of which address problems related to energy, environment, sustainable development, education, cultural preservation, and technology policy.
