Abstract

This study, prepared for Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), details how Cuenca, Ecuador could serve the university as an international center for students to complete their Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP). We used preferences of faculty and students derived from survey results and interviews, guidelines provided by the university, and information about existing centers to identify qualities appropriate for a new IQP project center. Through a literature review and an on-site investigation, we assessed Cuenca's suitability and recommended specific housing, sponsors, and projects.
