The Makerspace program focuses on the design and making of physical objects as a way to learn research and entrepreneurship. The program aims to:

  • Support the integration of making into new and existing courses via faculty course development grants, faculty learning communities, teaching awards, and training for faculty and teaching assistants.
  • Establish one-credit skills courses that students can use to demonstrate deep knowledge of specific techniques.
  • Support campus-wide maker events and expand BeAM (Be A Maker) into the residence halls.
  • Establish workshops that train students in the maker skills needed to launch them directly into research groups.
