Student Innovation Lab

The Innovation Laboratory is a custom-built ecosystem with non-linear writeable wall space, interactive technology, communication devices, a prototyping center, and idea creation tools designed to pioneer student invention through interdisciplinary collaboration. The Innovation Laboratory (iLab) is available to students enrolled in the Innovation courses as well as student business incubation studio tenants as a place that harnesses technology to enhance creativity and bring ideas into reality.

Did you know that you can check out technology and equipment (iPads, 3D-pen, Macbook Airs), develop iPhone applications, video games, media productions, 3D animations, and create 3D printed objects? Students enrolled in the innovation program have access to these resources and more inside the Innovation Lab.
