4.511 Advanced Projects in Digital Fabrication

Spring 2016

This is a hands-on course that offers skills and knowledge in digital fabrication, computing and robotics. It is graduate level research that explores these topics through project-based learning. Part one is three weeks of refreshment for some students  or new learning for others in advanced modeling techniques and advance CNC fabrication. The second half of the course focuses on an introduction to robotics concluding with a project. Course deliverable is a conference level research paper and presentation.

Creative Design Making with a Robotic Arm

Summer 2016, Registration is open!

This is a MIT Professional Education course offered in the summer of 2016. The course will provide practitioners and educators access to foundational knowledge that will enable them to integrate robotics in their design making practice or class room. The course will teach the broad range of skills necessary for robotic programming, including solid, parametric, and contour modeling; visual programming; and principles of rapid prototyping.
