2022 senior projects
This year's senior projects saw the return of in-person presentations during March 2022.
Students drew on their course work—including mathematical modeling, systems analysis, organization theory, optimization, probability, statistics, ethics, computer science, and economics—to inform their work on the projects.
Projects for 2022 infused optimization problems, such as how best to take a company public, with a heavy emphasis on social impact, for example defining best practices for a homeless shelter's transition from congregate to non-congregate housing. Sponsor organizations ranged from early-stage startups like Metrus Energy, to established firms like ESPN, to non-profits like 3Strands Global Foundation that serve to impact the community at large.
Students were mentored by MS&E faculty members along the way, meeting regularly in groups to refine their work leading up to their final presentations. This year's faculty mentors included professors Ramesh Johari, Riitta Katila, Markus Pelger, and James Sweeney.
