Makerspace is a community of designers and builders at UW-Madison, run within the College of Engineering (CoE). Their facilities include 12,000 square feet of shop and flex space with a wide range of rapid prototyping equipment. Largely student run, they strive to empower students and create a community immersed in emerging technologies and focused on creating innovative products.
They are part of the CoE ecosystem of fabrication facilities, which includes the Makerspace (rapid prototyping), TEAM-Lab (precision machining, fee for service job-shop), and Visualization Suite (virtual reality and data visualization). These facilities together are over 25,000 square feet, run by 10 professional full-time staff members and ~50 student workers and contain millions of dollars in high-tech equipment. Students can build anything here: from micro to macro and from virtual to physical.
