Chapter Award

WPI MQP Competetion
Undergraduate students at Worcester Polytechnic Institute must complete a Major Qualifying Project (MQP), under the guidance of academic advisors, in order to obtain their degrees.   Ideally, the project synthesizes all previous study in order to solve problems and perform tasks in the chosen major field, with students striving to communicate results confidently and effectively.

The Central Massachusetts Chapter of ASM International sponsors and presents an award for a competition to select the best MQP presentation in the Mechanical Engineering department, with special emphasis on Materials research. Three chosen finalist teams give brief presentations of the highlights of their accomplishments before the winner was announced. 

2015 MQP Competition Finalist:

"Development of a High Energy Density Micro-Lithium Ion Battery
Omri Flaisher, Chad Hucey, Nathan Martel
 
Design of a Nozzle for SSM Printing
Michael Wight
 
"Changes in Viscoelastic Perperties of Ice Cream Due to Composition and Flavor
