Emily Molstad will also be returning to WPI for her MS in Material Science and Engineering.
“I dedicated my undergraduate technical experience to sustainability and efforts toward protecting our natural resources. I carried out projects such as reducing single use plastics in Bangkok, Thailand, recovering valuable metals from electronic waste, and developing material processing techniques for solar panels. The Grand Challenge Scholars Program helped me hone in on my engineering and entrepreneurial skills while providing direction on my path towards a career in sustainability. I am grateful for the confidence and support I’ve gained through GCSP which have allowed me to be successful in my career and engaged in my community.”
