The Olin Curriculum
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.
The Olin College Summer Experiences in Education Research (SEER) Program is an NSF-funded REU/RET program in engineering education research for STEM undergraduates and teachers.
1000+ 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.
