Preparation for Engineering

Wellesley students interested in engineering can take advantage of the exchanges with MIT and Olin College.

They are encouraged to enroll in EXTD 160: Introduction to Engineering Science at Wellesley before taking specific engineering courses at MIT or Olin. Those who would like to go on to graduate study in engineering can combine a set of engineering courses with a science major at Wellesley in a four-year program. They should consult with the relevant Wellesley advisor to develop a curricular plan. General information is posted here.  Students interested in engineering may also consider earning a certificate in engineering studies from Olin College.

Students interested in engineering should take mathematics and physics at Wellesley in preparation for courses at MIT and Olin. The Wellesley faculty advisors can provide information concerning engineering fields, prerequisites, and contact persons at MIT and Olin.
