Engineering with a concentration in biomechanics

"Choosing my major was definitely not easy. I came to Olin not knowing what I wanted to do besides help people, but I knew engineering was the way to do it. I’ve always been excited by health care, especially prosthetics. Before Olin, I spent lots of time in an orthopedics office and was excited by advances in prosthetics. I created my self-designed concentration with the intent of learning the mechanics behind human beings, and how mechanical systems can interact with the human body."
