The Virginia Commonwealth University College of Engineering Makerspaces encompass Maker Garage, the Mechanical and Nuclear Engineering Innovation Lab, and Maker Studio (Engineering Research Building, ERB). These facilities provide students, staff, and faculty with state-of-the-art advanced additive and subtractive manufacturing capabilities such as design, fabrication, prototyping, and testing.
The Makerspace environment at the College of Engineering was established to support our community of students. We provide exemplary knowledge and resources in a hands-on learning environment to encouraging student collaboration while fostering practical creativity.
The Makerspaces provide a wide range of services for the College of Engineering and other departments across the entire university community, including:
It is our goal to support all projects, no matter the scope. All levels of experience are welcome and will be given appropriate training. In addition to providing students with access to industry standard equipment, having access to an on-campus makerspace environment allows students to take what they have learned and apply it to practical applications.
