New Design Space to Open This Fall

You are here

Construction is underway on the Idea Forge, a flexible, cross-disciplinary, collaborative space where students can imagine, design, create and test products and solutions to meet a range of societal and industry needs.

The Idea Forge, slated to open in the former law library of the Fleming Building on the CU-Boulder campus this August, will have reconfigurable, interconnected "makerspaces" to accommodate different projects, as well as feature rapid prototyping, advanced machining facilities and welding and electronics shops. 

Students in all departments and programs in the College of Engineering and Applied Science – including the ATLAS Institute and our three residential academic programs – will have access to the space, as will students enrolled in the new bachelor of arts major in computer science and CU-Boulder’s new Pre-Engineering Program

The Idea Forge will house Design Center Colorado and will support student teams working on invention and innovation as part of courses, as well as design and development by entrepreneurial-minded individuals and service-oriented groups such as Engineers Without Borders
