Making and Makerspaces in Electrical and Computer Engineering Education Workshop


Makerspaces often attract students with a strong interest in electrical and computer engineering (ECE) related topics, including embedded systems, robotics, artificial intelligence, human-computer interaction, and electronics. Although many makers self-identify as having interests related to ECE, university and community college makerspaces often focus primarily on mechanical fabrication tools such as 3-D printers and laser cutters. 

This interactive workshop will: 

1) explore how making and makerspaces can help departments attract and retain students in ECE 
2) show how student learning can change by their involvement with makerspaces, and
3) provide individuals considering whether to create makerspaces methods to do so more effectively. 

This workshop is designed for chairs, faculty, instructors, and lab staff from universities and community colleges along with industry, researchers, and others with an interest in making and makerspaces. Workshop sessions will include a keynote from a thought leader in the maker movement; a panel on the current state of making in ECE; an opportunity to do hands-on ECE-related making over lunch; how to design, build, and sustain inclusive ECE makerspaces; and making action plans to continue collaborating within a making in ECE community of practice. Speakers and workshop facilitators include thought leaders from the Nation of Makers, Cypress Semiconductor, Digi-Key, Arizona State, Bucknell, Georgia Tech, University of Illinois, and Virginia Tech.  

More information on the workshop and registration is available below. A limited number of travel grants are available thanks to support from the National Science Foundation (EEC-1853158). Apply for a travel grant below by February 14.
