Bring your ideas to life at the Engineering Makerspace on the King’s Buildings campus.

The Engineering Makerspace is a dedicated workspace where students can design, build and test their own engineering models and inventions. Co-run by the School of Engineering and Edinburgh Innovations, it is home to a community of student inventors, from first years to PhD students.

Digital Manufacturing refers to a convergence of complementary computing technologies that, in combination, have the potential to create an industrial revolution whose impact is comparable with introduction of steam power or the adoption of mass production. The fundamental technologies underpinning digital manufacturing are sensing, automation, control, additive manufacturing, simulation and modelling whose combined use is facilitated by AI, data-mining, image recognition, network communications and geometric modelling.
