For our Industry Members, the IDC offers workshops, bringing together multi-disciplinary teams of faculty, researchers and staff along with industry colleagues to provide radical design research on relevant industry topics. This transformational approach to innovative design research on industry challenges will allow academia and industry to collaborate to bring solutions to market. For more information, please contact Deb Payson
For more information please contact Chris Haynes, IDC Shop Manager.
The IDC shops support all the making activities for members of the IDC design community. This includes the resident labs, programs, Edgerton clubs/teams and IDC Makers (which includes the IDC MakerLodge). The 13,650-square-foot facility is designed to be highly flexible to meet the needs of our diverse student body. The IDC has some of the best commercially available equipment, as well as systems designed by our own faculty members. We have fabrication, testing, 3D printers, laser cutting, open space and more. Please visit the IDC Shop website.
The MIT Bootcamps team hosted a 25 participant Internet of Things program at the IDC, using the garage space to host interactive lectures and labs. Students developed projects that sense, connect, infer, and act, with access to the IDC’s shop space and hardware and electronic prototyping tools supporting their efforts. Learn More.
