What is a University Makerspace?

University makerspaces are a network of makerspaces in partner Universities where students can learn about digital technologies in a hands-on environment, turn their ideas into working prototypes and in the process come up with local solutions to local problems. They are equipped with everything needed to turn an IoT idea into a working prototype, including both Cisco and 3rd party equipment.
The program is structured to encourage a rapid prototyping mindset with 24/7 access to the makerspace and all the equipment therein as well as active mentorship and training.
