Harry Chartoff Returns Following Intensive Research Project

Worcester, MA—Harry Chartoff of Woodbridge, Conn., a member of the class of 2018 majoring in biomedical engineering at Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), was a member of a student team that recently completed an intense, hands-on research project in Puerto Rico.  The project was titled Historic Bridge Preservation.  In their project outline, the students wrote, “The WPI project team utilized literature reviews, on-site assessments, and SolidWorks to create new bridge designs, develop a cost-benefit analysis with differing choices in materials for each of the historic bridges, and designed informational signs that would be placed around the bridges.”  At WPI, all undergraduates are required to complete a research-driven, professional-level project that applies science and technology to addresses an important societal need or issue.  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.
