From Trash to Treasure

This sign was made in about 20 minutes (manufacturing time) by a faculty member at the School of Education learning the fantastic world of digital design and manufacturing! The wood with which it was produced was actually pulled from the rubbish bin, and is an old pine shelf reinvigorated. Learn CNC and digital design; come spend some time with the makerspaces, our student engineers, and learn how to turn your own trash to treasure.

CNC Machining Fridays!

We’re back at it again! Every Friday from 3-5pm come join us in the Makerspace Engineering Center in Small Hall to learn, practice, and talk about milling, routing, and lathes!

Open for Summer ’21!

We’re here (albeit at very limited capacity) and are training, learning and building things! Our standard (walk-in) hours are 1-3pm, M-F, in Small Hall 224 (Makerspace Engineering & Applied Design Lab). We’re also ready to help you at most other times, put in a request through our online service desk and we’ll figure out what works for everyone!

Here we are going over toolpath generation & CNC machining!

EPAD Capstones Head to the Finish Line

In case you’re not familiar, EPAD stands for Engineering, Physics & Applied Design and is a relatively new track developed as a venture between Physics & Applied Science. At the conclusion of a Physics-EPAD degree program the students have to undertake a year long engineering capstone project as a team that comes in a variety of flavors. As we head into the end of the AY20-21 year you can see some students working hard on their capstones.
