Engineering is science applied in service to society. In every discipline, Women Who Will need technical literacy to be most influential.
The Wellesley Engineering Laboratory (We-Lab) encourages all students at Wellesley College to explore engineering. Just as an effective engineer requires outstanding communication skills, a liberal arts major can be far more influential in her discipline if she understands the technical aspects of worldwide challenges such as energy, hunger, and medicine. We-Lab gives all students at the college the opportunity to develop engineering habits of mind and to understand the role technology has to play in improving our world. We-Lab emphasizes the role of technology as a humanitarian endeavor, addressing needs of under-served populations internationally and locally.
Whether you want to broaden your education with a single engineering class, take an engineering class through cross-registration at Olin College or MIT, pursue a graduate engineering degree, or explore one of Wellesley's engineering dual degree programs with Olin or MIT, We-Lab is here to provide engineering insight, literacy, and advice.
