Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s Interactive Qualifying Project challenges students to address problems at the intersection of society and technology. Our project was to diversify student opportunities at the Global Projects Program’s new project center in Switzerland by recommending new project partners and developing tools and strategies for growth. By meeting WPI alumni, we learned how the IQP could grow in Switzerland. We also created an annotated bibliography and summary of IQP literature, demonstrating the impact of a global experience on engineering education.
