What is Makerspace?


student experiencing VRMakerspace provides opportunities for students, faculty and staff to interact with digital fabrication and traditional crafting tools for design, creating and prototyping. Priority is given to teaching, course assignments and research activities. Other creative projects are also welcome. 
This short video shows what you can do at the Makerspace.


We provide training and assistance to faculty and students in the design and creation of 3D models, web sites, graphics and media productions. We hold open houses, workshops and individual consultations to help students with course assignment and creative projects.
