Design Thinking Opportunities
MTC and Makerlab Workshops
Students can receive training on traditional mechanical methods and equipment through workshops at the Manufacturing Training Centre (MTC), which will then allow them to use the Brunsfield Centre. The MakerLab also provides training on the use of digital equipment found at the Richard L’Abbé Makerspace, such as 3D printing and microcontrollers, through various workshops. All workshops are available to any student and university faculty member interested.
Prototyping and manufacturing spaces
Located on the first floor of the STEM Complex, our rapid prototyping & manufacturing spaces provide students with modern equipment and new opportunities to design, build, and test prototypes.
Design courses with industry
Our client based design courses, held in the MakerLab, allow students to design and develop a solution by working with a real client to address an industry problem.
Design Day is an event where students showcase the design projects they have developed as a solution for external partners of the Faculty of Engineering. Industry professionals act as judges and determine a winning team in each category.
Competitive teams provide hands-on opportunities to students who wish to develop their design, teamwork, communication, and project-management skills. These teams represent the University in diverse international competitions and get access to the John McEntyre Team Space (JMTS) to work on their prototypes.
