MIT Study Names Olin World Leader in Engineering Education

It is with great pride that we share the results of a just-released MIT study, "The global state of the art in engineering education,” which identifies Olin on the top of both lists for current and emerging leaders in engineering education. Olin was cited for its “multidisciplinary student-centered education that extends across and beyond traditional engineering disciplines and is anchored in issues of ethics and social responsibility.” This is a proud moment for everyone involved in Olin. It shows our hard work and fearless experimentation have paid off! Many thanks and congratulations go out to the entire Olin community.
