B-FAB is a program originally designed to help engineering students to turn their ideas into physical prototypes, and also gain experience with the product design and development process.  B-FAB was conceived out a perceived need for additional training in digital design and fabrication techniques and technologies, such as 3D printing and laser cutting, which are becoming increasingly accessible in MakerSpaces on and off campus.  B-FAB began in 2014 and has since evolved to include a workshop aimed at training faculty to use the same digital design and fabrication technologies. In this case the goal is to encourage faculty to assign more curricular projects that involve physical prototyping.

B-FAB Students

B-FAB for Students

A week-long workshop experience for returning engineering students that emphasizes the use of product development tools (such as basic woodworking, hand-tools, material selection, using CAD technology, laser-cutting/engraving, and 3-D printing) that will help students to develop functional prototypes of their ideas.

B-FAB for Faculty

A three-day workshop in which engineering faculty are trained to use digital design and fabrication techniques and hardware, and to incorporate related projects in the courses that they teach.
