Here is an overview of the process of submission:
For individual projects, one student will submit their files and descriptive metadata.
The student or team submits a PDF through the system and the advisor must approve the final report. The advisor assigns grades and forwards them to the Registrar's Office.
- For team projects, any student in the submission group may upload or edit that file/metadata on behalf of the team. One member of the team will submit the report to the advisor(s) for approval and grading, on behalf of the team.
- In the submission process, there is a form asking you to fill in descriptive information about your project. This page contains the title, the abstract, lists the sponsors, if any, and lists the advisors.
- Please be as careful entering this information as you are with your report, so that typographic errors do not appear on your transcript or in your web display. Please do not enter titles in all capital letters. It is ok to capitalize each word (or better, use Title Case).
- After this descriptive information is complete, the PDF itself can be attached along with any supplemental files.
- You are also asked to agree to the statement that permits WPI to publish your project online. This means you retain the copyright to your work, but agree that WPI may share it and archive it. The statement reads:
"I hereby grant to WPI or its agents the right to archive and to make available my e-project in whole or in part in the University Libraries in all forms of media, now or hereafter known. I retain all proprietary rights, such as patent rights. I also retain the right to use in future works (such as articles or books) all or part of this e-project."
- Each student on a project team is required to complete an evaluation of their project and advisor(s) before the project can be approved and graded.
