MAKERSPACE

Combining academic excellence, experience on projects and internships,
and soft skills training to produce work-ready employees

Made possible with the Support of the United States Department of Education

Projects on which student teams are deployed will be centered in the MakerSpace.

The MakerSpace is a 3,000 sq.ft. prototyping suite and co-working facility on the campus of the City College of New York.  Housed in the cellar of Steinman Hall, home of the Grove School of Engineering and slated for completion by Fall 2019, the MakerSpace will be fully-equipped with a wide array of state-of-the-art equipment (3D printers, laser scanners, laser engravers, PCB circuit printers, sewing machines, Inventor Arduino, and Raspberry Pi kits, etc.) and numerous tools and devices to bring projects to life.  It is part of a campus-wide Production Zone that, in partnership with the facilities of the Zahn Innovation Center, the Masters in Translational Medicine (MTM) Program, the CCNY Machine Shop, and the individual laboratories of distinguished professors on campus, provide the means of fulfilling all STEM research and development activities and goals – from concept through fabrication, assembly and testing of prototypes.  This combination of equipment and facilities allows CCNY to deliver exceptional research and projects for academic, industrial, and governmental purposes while providing hands-on learning opportunities to our students.

The MakerSpace prototyping facilities are co-located with an expansive, flexible co-working space.  The space will feature an open floorplan that allows its tables and chairs to be rearranged, as needed, to facilitate work and interaction.  It will also feature conference-call capable smartboards, copious whiteboard spaces, dedicated computer workstations, and supplies to allow projects to move forward smoothly.  It will be overseen by an on-sight technologist who can manage projects, handle machines, and help project teams deliver results on time.
