Senior Capstone Program in Engineering (SCOPE)

a senior year corporate consultant project

SCOPE is a unique industry-university collaboration, and the culminating experience of an Olin student's education. Over the course of a full academic year, seniors work in multi-disciplinary teams to provide innovative solutions to a company’s real-world problems. Notably, sponsors retain full rights to all intellectual property developed by the team.

Olin has conducted SCOPE projects for organizations around the country, including Fortune 500 corporations, government research laboratories, product development companies and small businesses and startups. SCOPE teams have worked with major companies from both the public and private sectors to:

  • Expand the potential for applications of multi-function radar arrays by improving performance
  • Create testing equipment for microfluidic drop technology to enhance accuracy and reduce cost 
  • Develop multi-vehicle coordination algorithms for teams of unmanned surface vessels and air vehicles
  • Improve migration resistance in esophageal stents for biomedical product development efforts
