Visit Olin

Introductory half-day visits, offered during our academic year, are a compelling way to experience the unique culture of Olin and spark ideas. A highlight of the visit is our “Campus, Curriculum, Culture” walking tour, led by student liaisons who work as a part of our Collaboratory team, giving visitors the chance to hear directly from them about their experiences. 

For answers to some of the questions most frequently asked by our academic visitors, watch the video below. 

The above video is broken into five smaller pieces here.

Olin Exposition

At the end of each semester, Olin holds a day-long campus-wide showcase of student work.  This event is an outstanding opportunity to experience a cross-section of Olin's curriculum and culture, from robotic vehicles to Rubik's cubes, from automated cake frosters to ballroom dance to the newest mobile apps.  Expo is an excellent time for a drop-in visit or for a day-long immersion into all that Olin has to offer.  In 2018, Fall Expo will be held on Monday, December 17.


940+ institutions have visited Olin since the inception of the Collaboratory (as I2E2, the Initiative for Innovation in Engineering Education) in 2009
