In Affordable Design & Entrepreneurship students design products and services alongside community members who are facing challenges that relate to poverty in developing and underserved areas around the world.
At Olin, it’s not just about what students know, but what they do with that knowledge. Every student learns about software, electronics and mechanical systems, and has several chances to work with students from other majors on interdisciplinary projects.
Collaborate with Olin
Olin is more than just a laboratory for innovation in engineering education on our own campus. We are also a “collaboratory,” dedicated to co-designing transformational educational experiences with and for other institutions.
This month Olin will host more than 30 school Deans for a workshop titled “Catalyzing a Research Agenda for Enhancing Engineering Education through Institutional Collaborations.”
2000+ educators have visited Olin since the inception of the Collaboratory in 2009. Many come in to do an introductory day visit, which is a compelling way to experience the unique culture of Olin and spark ideas.
