MAKE Northwestern serves as an information hub for fabrication facilities and resources


Northwestern Engineering has several facilities for fabrication and prototyping. But how do you know which one is best for your project?

Head to MAKE Northwestern (, the University’s new one-stop information hub for all of its fabrication facilities and resources. Not only can the site help you identify the facility with the best equipment and materials for your specific assignment, it also acts as a portal to projects, research, and events.

MAKE Northwestern outlines information about the following facilities:

  • 3D Printing and Rapid Prototyping Lab
  • Segal Prototyping and Fabrication Lab
  • The Garage
  • Research Shop
  • Electronics Shop
  • Mechatronics Lab
  • Corner Makery

The site also answers questions like:

  • What manufacturing facilities are available on campus?
  • What types of equipment are available?
  • What services can I access?
  • How do I get trained to use the facilities?
  • What are my project’s needs?
  • How do I get involved with manufacturing research?
