Program Description:

MIT BldgLocation

MIT Lincoln Laboratory was founded in 1951 as a federally funded research and development center for MIT. Lincoln Laboratory’s fundamental mission is to apply science and advanced technology to critical problems of national security. The scope of these problems includes air defense, communications, space surveillance, missile defense, tactical surveillance systems, and air traffic control.

All projects are conducted at Lincoln Laboratory, located in Lexington, MA. Students commute from WPI to Lexington by chartered bus (provided by WPI).


Projects at Lincoln Laboratory focus on a variety of areas and project teams are often interdisciplinary. Teams work with a mentor from Lincoln Laboratory as well as one or more WPI faculty advisors.

During A-Term, students work on their MQPs at Lincoln Laboratory full-time (five days a week) for approximately nine weeks. The first two weeks, arranged immediately prior to the start of A-Term, serve as a PQP period.

Many students selected for this program also seek summer employment at Lincoln Laboratory for the summer preceding the project.
