So it was with interest that I read "Eight Tuition-Free Colleges" (link below) in the Wall Street Journal (which says it reprinted the piece from www.mentalfloss.com). A couple of the schools have engineering ties, but one is a dedicated engineering school: Olin College of Engineering in Needham, MA.
According to the article, each student who attends does so tuition-free. Beyond the $130,000 savings, Olin is also noteworthy for its emphasis on both entrepreneurship and philanthropy.
Below, I'm including a link to Olin's own description for its mechanical engineering department. With an emphasis on creative problemsolving, it sounds like an attractive academic home for any potential next-generation engineers in your home.
And the price is right.
