At WPI, undergraduate students are actively involved in research with real-world impact. Through hands-on projects, lab work, and collaborations with faculty and peers, undergraduates are discovering innovative solutions to critical problems across a wide range of fields.

The WPI Undergraduate Research Journal (WURJ) provides a venue to share these impressive research achievements with the campus and larger academic community. Published annually in D-Term, WURJ features high-quality articles written by undergraduate students presenting findings from IQP’s, MQP’s, independent study projects, and class projects. WURJ is completely organized by a panel of graduate student volunteers that reviews and selects submissions based on rigorous criteria, and the review process is competitive.

Current WPI undergraduates and summer students are invited to submit their research to WURJ for consideration in the Spring 2018 issue.
