Olin College of Engineering is more than just a laboratory for innovation in engineering education on our own campus. We are dedicated to co-creating transformational educational experiences with academic partners around the world. We support and guide leaders in education, business, and government seeking to change educational institutions and systems to spur the innovation necessary to take on society's big challenges.

Olin College professor Tim Sauder mentors participants of the Summer Institute about pedagogical approaches.

Teaching & Learning

Students and faculty teach and learn from and with each other. Together, we build and sustain a culture of innovation, experimentation, curiosity and joyful exploration.

Curricular Design

Olin's broader conception of engineering demands that engineers consider the larger consequences of technology and how good in the world can be achieved through inclusive practices.

Co-creating Transformational Education

Olin engages with other institutions on their curricular change efforts through workshops and custom consulting.

Experience Olin

SCOPE Summit

Join us as 13 SCOPE teams give presentations of the results of their year-long projects sponsored by corporations, government research centers, and private foundations.

Attend the Summer Institute

Custom Consultation

For a more immersive experience at Olin, attend one of our curricular workshops. We offer single-day, week-long, and custom workshops to suit various interests.

Featured Resource

Engineering for Humanity

This introductory course at Olin blends Anthropology and Design approaches. This design-for-aging course introduces students to engineering problem solving, beginning with understanding human needs and ending with implemented, adaptable, and sustainable solutions. The course draws equally on empathetic and ethnographic methods, and on a technical understanding of the problem and solution domains. 

E4H faculty have created a Curriculum Resource and point of connection for educators interested in adapting material from the “Engineering for Humanity” course offered at Olin College of Engineering. This curriculum resource may be shared, used, and modified by other educators.
