At Cornell he majored in civil engineering and was captain of the baseball team.
Undergraduate Engineering - Electrical and Computer Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, and Engineering (with concentrations in bioengineering, computing, design and robotics).
One important facet of an Olin faculty member's role is to engage in meaningful externally-facing work through activities such as research, entrepreneurship, technical and educational consulting, creative work and more. Our externally-facing work is valued for the impact it has on outside stake-holders such as research communities, companies, other universities, the general public and others. The majority of our faculty engage in research as part of their “external impact” portfolios, and they typically involve groups of undergraduate students.
The Office of Post-Graduate Planning assists students and alumni in their journey to enrich their educational experiences, careers and lives in order to make lifelong contributions to society. Our career center helps identify meaningful research, internship, scholarship, fellowship, professional and graduate school opportunities.

Olin's extensive IT infrastructure is what you should expect from an engineering college for the 21st Century. The academic buildings feature fully networked classrooms that will allow professors and students to use the latest instructional technologies as part of the learning process. The design is flexible enough so that new technologies can be incorporated as they develop.
