The Makerspace is the student-run, rapid prototyping facility that is part of the Grainger Engineering Design Innovation Lab. This was all made possible through a multi-million dollar commitment from The Grainger Foundation. Our facilities include 12,000 ft^2 of shop and flex space with a wide range of rapid prototyping equipment. We strive to empower students and create a community immersed in emerging technologies and focused on creating innovative products.
We are part of the College of Engineering ecosystem of fabrication facilities, which includes the Makerspace (rapid prototyping), TEAM-Lab (precision machining, fee for service job-shop) and Kohler Visualization Studio (virtual reality, 3D scanning and data visualization). These facilities together are over 25,000 ft^2, run by 10 professional full-time staff members and ~50 student workers and contain millions of dollars of high-tech equipment. Students can build anything here: from micro to macro and from virtual to the physical.
