Intro to Making & Hardware Ventures @ MIT

The objective of this class is to help novice makers build confidence in their ability to create physical prototypes with a variety of making skills, prototyping tools, and processes utilized in real-world engineering and product management. Making skills covered in the class include rapid prototyping, 3D printing, laser cutting, circuit design, and Arduino programming. This course also covers design theory, project scoping, and how to conduct primary market research with potential users of the final product.


Students will participate in hands-on labs in the makerspace, and complete two making projects over the course of the semester that demonstrate a knowledge of both theoretical and practical design and making skills. 

Class size is 24 students per semest, offered in both the fall & spring.
