News and Announcements

On February 22nd, Richard K. Miller will give us insights into Franklin W. Olin College of Engineering.

Olin College of Engineering was established in 1997 for the specific purpose of developing a new paradigm for engineering education. The purpose of Olin is to become an important and constant contributor to the advancement of engineering education in America and throughout the world. The average Olin graduate has completed about 20 team-based engineering design projects while earning an ABET accredited engineering degree deeply infused with human centred design and entrepreneurial experience.

Olin was identified in a 2018 benchmark study published by MIT as among the top two undergraduate engineering programs in the world. One of the first graduates of Olin College is Frances Haugen ’06 who was the Facebook whistleblower who testified before parliament and was featured on the cover of Time magazine.

In the ten-year period from 2010 – 2020, Olin hosted visits from the leaders of 800 universities in 65 countries interested in learning from the Olin experiments. This talk by Richard K. Miller, Founding President of Olin College, will cover the origin, founding principles and experiences, and the lessons learned for the broader field of higher education in every discipline.
