Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has announced that Joshua Rondon of Revere, a member of the class of 2020 majoring in mechanical engineering, was named to the university’s Dean’s List for academic excellence for the spring 2018 semester.

A total of 1,474 undergraduate students achieved the criteria required for WPI’s spring 2018 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 go beyond the classroom to work on open-ended problems in and for communities around the world. The problems are important and the impact is real” said Arthur C. Heinricher, dean of undergraduate studies. “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.”
