Olin offers a number of ways for Wellesley, Babson, and Brandeis students to explore engineering:
Individual Courses: Any student from Wellesley, Babson, or Brandeis is welcome to cross-register for any individual course at Olin. Naturally some courses have pre-requisites; discussion with the instructor will be helpful in determining whether you are prepared for a given course. Courses that might be of particular interest to students with non-engineering backgrounds are listed here; a full listing of courses is available in the Olin Catalog.
Certificate Program: Olin College offers a Certificate in Engineering Studies for students at Brandeis University, Wellesley College, or Babson College. Certificate programs in a number of different disciplines are offered. The courses of study are designed to provide the student with a fundamental understanding of an engineering field, and typically consist of five courses ranging from first-year to upper-level. For those students who want to explore the world of engineering, the Certificate provides a structured course of study in engineering that allows students to gain more exposure, more education, and more experience in the art and science of engineering. Students completing the Certificate may have the opportunity to expand their post-graduate options for careers or advanced study in technological fields by demonstrating a more significant degree of engineering expertise and a commitment to further engineering education, or may wish to pursue a BS in engineering through the Olin 4+1 Program (currently open only to Wellesley students).
4+1 Program: The 4+1 Program offers Wellesley students the
opportunity, after completing a BA in a liberal arts field at Wellesley, to
earn a BS in Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, or Electrical and Computer
Engineering at Olin through approximately one additional year of study. The 4+1
Program provides one possible route for Certificate Program students to deepen
their engineering education.
