(January 28, 2023) — A total of 2,069 undergraduate students achieved the criteria required for Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s (WPI) Fall 2022 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 Dean of Undergraduate Studies 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 from our area were named to the Dean’s List for Fall 2022:
James Clemente of Killingworth, majoring in Mechanical Engineering, Class of 2025
Andrew Conti of Killingworth, majoring in Mechanical Engineering, Class of 2026
WPI, located in Worcester, Massachusetts, is a distinctive, top-tier technological university 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.
