Merit Pages News

(May 24, 2023) — A total of 2,054 undergraduate students achieved the criteria required for Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s Spring 2023 Dean’s List. The criteria for the WPI Dean’s List differs from that of most other universities as WPI does not compute a grade point average (GPA). Instead, WPI defines the Dean’s List by the amount of work completed at the A level in courses and projects.

“WPI’s academic programs are rigorous and require a level of independence beyond what is required in traditional courses. WPI students work on open-ended problems for communities around the world. The problems are important and the impact is real,” said Professor Arthur C. Heinricher. “Some of this nation’s best and brightest students come to WPI to study engineering and science and business and the humanities. Those named to the Dean’s List have excelled in all of their work, and we are exceptionally proud of these outstanding students.”

The following students were among those on the Dean’s List for Spring 2023:

Kaitlyn Byrum of Killingworth, Class of 2025, majoring in Industrial Engineering and Mechanical Engineering

Jimmy Clemente of Killingworth, Class of 2024, majoring in Mechanical Engineering

Andrew Conti of Killingworth, Class of 2026, majoring in Mechanical Engineering

WPI is located in Worcester, Massachusetts. The school was founded in 1865 on the principle that students learn most effectively by applying the theory learned in the classroom to the practice of solving real-world problems.
