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 SEER Program is an REU/RET site with the goal of advancing this work by providing undergraduate students and K-12 teachers the opportunity to become part of a learning community 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.
