A new Technology Engagement Center, complete with an expanded Co-Lab Studio makerspace, is now open in the renovated first floor of the Telecommunications Building.
The Co-Lab Studio (formerly called Innovation Studio) offers 50+ 3D printers, laser and CNC milling machines, electronics station and other fabrication tools, and serves as the creative maker space on campus.
Students, faculty and staff can prototype projects at no cost. It is located in the new Technology Engagement Center (TEC) in the Telcom building on west campus and fully staffed Monday-Thursday from 11 a.m. - 8 p.m.
The philosophy behind the Co-Lab Studio is to have a one-stop shop for anyone, regardless of skill and experience, to come in and be able to make a product through an iterative design process known as Digital Modeling and Fabrication. The studio has all the equipment that you need to conceive of, design, and prototype all kinds of products and designs.
The Co-Lab Studio is operated by OIT and is an integral part of Duke's student creativity incubator, Innovation Co-Lab.
