WORCESTER, Mass. — Justin Rice of Oakland, Maine, a senior majoring in electrical and computer engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute, recently completed an intense, hands-on project in Lexington. The project was titled Passive Geo-Location of a Radio Frequency Transmitter, according to a news release from WPI.

At WPI, all undergraduates are required to complete a research-driven, professional-level project addressing a challenge in their major field of study. About two-thirds of students complete a project at one of the university’s more than 40 off-campus project centers, which are located around the world. A signature element of the innovative undergraduate experience at WPI, the project-based curriculum offers students the opportunity to apply their scientific and technical knowledge to develop thoughtful solutions to real problems that affect the quality of people’s lives — and make a difference before they graduate.
