The Rapid Application Development (RAD) Makerspace/Robotics Lab is the place where ideas become reality. With a wall of 3D printers and specialized tools to assist in the development of robotic creations, this lab is ground zero for creativity and innovation.
One of the most dynamic and hands-on labs on campus supports students across all majors as they undertake complex, innovative projects. Wearable computers, media production, game development, and simulated environments regularly take shape in the lab, which features a multisensory communications center continually updated with new technologies.
Tomorrow’s digital obsessions take shape here, with augmented reality and virtual reality – and Florida Poly students – playing a starring role.
Students working in the growing field of nanotechnology have the equipment and guidance they need to pursue their interest in the tiny technology. With everyday objects and the technology fueling them shrinking to impossibly small sizes, nanotechnology is truly the next frontier of tech.
The Nanotechnology Lab supports students pursuing work in this emerging field, which offers opportunities in fields as diverse as medicine, robotics, and artificial intelligence.
Research is at the heart of advancements in academia, technology, and industry. The Research Lab allows students to sharpen their skills and progress on research in a wide variety of fields, including mathematics, physics, and general engineering. The advanced setting gives students the tools they need to make their work publication-ready, which enhances their individual appeal to graduate programs and employers.
