London Project Center
Students at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) must complete an Interactive Qualifying Project (IQP), usually during their junior year. However, students often have trouble researching project centers and preparing for their trip due to a lack of easily accessible information about the various centers. Prospective sponsors also may not have access to the information they want when considering involvement in a project. By conducting surveys and interviews with past students and project sponsors of the London Project Center (LPC), we determined the types of online resources that would be useful for both parties. We created a website that presents information on the IQP application process, transportation and tourism for students, and an overview of the program itself for sponsors.
