Olin College

Academic Overview:
From Olin's Olin's outstanding educational environment is a unique mix of exceptional students, faculty and facilities, combined with a pioneering approach to engineering education. Olin's faculty consists of nationally recognized scholars and researchers from top institutions with a deep commitment to undergraduate teaching. Our students are some of the most academically gifted and enterprising engineering candidates in the country. Our facilities are state-of-the-art, and built to stay that way. Finally, our curriculum represents the most advanced and innovative thinking about how to produce technological leaders who are both creative and entrepreneurial.

Principles of Engineering - ENGR 2210

Through a significant project experience, students will learn to integrate analysis, qualitative design, quantitative optimization, experiments, and simulations to improve their ability to engineer real systems. In each section of the course, students will work in small multidisciplinary teams to design and to build a mechatronic system of their own choosing. Each project must include both a nontrivial mechanical system design and a nontrivial electronic system design involving both hardware and software components. Projects will be subject to realistic materials, process, and budgetary constraints.
