Design and Innovation Center

Although it's on the ground floor, the Design and Innovation Center is arguably the crown jewel of the Brown-Kopel Student Achievement Center. Featuring a woodshop, a prototype shop, an electronics shop, a metal shop and a machine shop with some of the fanciest fabrication equipment money can buy, this 11,000-square-foot, student-run toy box open to students from all engineering disciplines offers more opportunity for hands-on learning — and more freedom to do it — than any other campus makerspace in the country. Want to make your own diamond-turning lathe? Your own engagement ring? Go for it — you wouldn't be the first. 

"I was offered an internship during my sophomore year. The company didn't care about my grades. They cared about my experience in the Makerspace" — Anya McDaniel, '24 chemical engineering
