In Design Nature - an intro to mechanical design & prototyping - students take nature as a theme and develop bio-inspired ideas into functional prototypes.
The Olin Curriculum
At Olin, students start engineering right away, with three classes in the first semester that provide hands-on experiences in several areas of engineering.
Olin is more than just a lab for innovation in engineering education. We are also a “collaboratory,” dedicated to co-designing transformational education experiences with 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 (as I2E2, the Initiative for Innovation in Engineering Education) in 2009.
