It’s an exciting time for Olin College of Engineering...

We are growing our community, building engagement and enacting the school’s dual mission: to educate a transformative generation of engineers and transform engineering education itself.

We are fortunate to have a passionate, engaged community who believe in and wholly support Olin’s revolutionary mission, values and approach. Each of us—faculty, staff, students, partners and friends—is motivated by the daily knowledge that we are building and evolving the college together.

We welcome you to learn more. You'll find open opportunities for both faculty and staff on this page.
