Engineering with a Concentration in Product Design

When I came to Olin I wanted to design race cars, so I started as a mechanical engineer, but I've always been interested in Olin's design curriculum. When I [took] User-Oriented Collaborative Design (UOCD), it convinced me that I should be a design concentration. I discovered how much I like figuring out what the need is, what the potential product could be and what features are most important. Olin has given me experience in making real things for real people, and that's what I want my major to be about.
