We embrace learning by doing. With the Provost's support, we provide machine-shop training for MIT students in the Edgerton Student Shop. We also run the Area 51 CNC Shop, a robust fabrication facility.
Along with these shops, other opportunities are included below:
Edgerton Student Shop
Build almost anything—for class, for research, or for your own use—in the Edgerton Student Shop.
Edgerton Student Project Lab
Home to a community of students who meet to tinker, experiment, design, and build.
MIT Hobby Shop
The Hobby Shop is a fully equipped wood and metal shop that teaches students the art of thoughtful design.
