About the ICS

The Integrated Engineering Design Innovation & Collaboration Studio aims to provide resources to students in the form of technology, tools, and knowledge in order to help them materialize their ideas. In the ICS students can turn their ideas into projects, and through collaboration with staff and other students these projects will become reality. The ICS is student-led with staff help to create everything from 3D printing parts to programming microcontrollers.

The ICS is a student-managed makerspace supported by the Tickle College of Engineering and is located in the basement of Perkins Hall. Visit us on Twitter.
