Mitchell named to Worcester Polytechnic Institute’s dean’s list

WORCESTER, MASS. — Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI) has announced that Mason Mitchell, class of 2023 majoring in robotics engineering, was named to the university’s dean’s list for academic excellence for the spring 2021 semester.

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.
