Carleton Named to Worcester Polytechnic Instituteâ€™s Spring 2020 Deanâ€™s List
Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has announced that Emelia Carleton of Winthrop,a member of the class of 2023 majoring in biomedical engineering, was named to the universityâ€™s Deanâ€™s List for academic excellence for the spring 2020 semester.
A total of 1,749 undergraduate students achieved the criteria required for WPIâ€™s spring 2020 Deanâ€™s List. The criteria for the WPI Deanâ€™s List differs from that of most other universities as WPI does not compute a grade point average (GPA). Instead, WPI defines the Deanâ€™s List by the amount of work completed at the A level in courses and projects.
â€œWPIâ€™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 realâ€ said dean of undergraduate studies Arthur C. Heinricher. â€œSome of this nationâ€™s best and brightest students come to WPI to study engineering and science and business and the humanities. Those named to the Deanâ€™s List have excelled in all of their work, and we are exceptionally proud of these outstanding students.â€
WPI, the global leader in project-based learning, 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. Recognized by the National Academy of Engineering with the 2016 Bernard M. Gordon Prize for Innovation in Engineering and Technology Education, WPIâ€™s pioneering project-based curriculum engages undergraduates in solving important scientific, technological, and societal problems throughout their education and at more than 50 project centers around the world. WPI offers more than 50 bachelorâ€™s, masterâ€™s, and doctoral degree programs across 14 academic departments in science, engineering, technology, business, the social sciences, and the humanities and arts. Its faculty and students pursue groundbreaking research to meet ongoing challenges in health and biotechnology; robotics and the internet of things; advanced materials and manufacturing; cyber, data, and security systems; learning science; and more. www.wpi.edu
