Course Description

The Engineering degree program gives students the option to pursue new areas of engineering and interdisciplinary combinations of engineering and other fields. Each student in the Engineering degree program designs a concentration that has depth, breadth, coherence and rigor and also satisfies the Olin College graduation requirements. All paths to graduation with the Engineering degree provide for all outcomes required by the ABET General Criteria.

Students who choose the Engineering degree must submit a plan of study along with their declaration of major. The plan lists the courses the student intends to take to fulfill graduation requirements, and demonstrates that these courses (along with additional required courses) constitute a major in engineering that has depth, breadth, coherence, and rigor. 

A set of pre­defined concentrations in Bioengineering, Computing, Design, Material Science, and Robotics are provided below. Students may design their plan of study using one of these pre­defined concentrations, or may create a new concentration that addresses their own interests. Students may choose a name for their self­-designed concentration. This concentration name appears on the diploma but not on the official transcript.

Robotics is a multi­-disciplinary field. A student may have a passion for the software, sensing, mechanics, controls or integration aspects of robotics. All of these are equally a part of the field of Robotics. 

Students wishing to pursue the Engineering - Robotics program from Olin College of Engineering the Engineering major must develop a specific program of study in consultation with robotics faculty members. In addition, a plan of study should contain both a statement of goals – including an explanation of focus area – and enough course material to support these goals. Robotics faculty members are available to help develop appropriate course selections.
