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.
The Olin Collaboratory Summer Institutes provide participants from around the country and around the world with the opportunity to conceive and catalyze change in engineering education.
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.
