What is The Makerspace?

The Makerspace is an open access workshop for all SEMS students and staff. It operates under the same umbrella as the Mechanical Workshop and the Whitehead Aerospace Laboratory.

It is, as the name implies a space where you can make things, this might be prototyping or model making as part of your degree, or simply working on your own personal projects.

Our primary aim in The Makerspace is to give students the practical, and creative skills they will require to be effective engineers.

So please come join us and make some cool stuff!
