MIT MakerWorkshop is available to students, faculty, and staff affiliated with the mechanical engineering department and the Martin Trust Center at MIT. For access to the shop, a qualified non-member must follow these steps:
- Become a member by attending Maker Monday. After Maker Monday, a member will have access to the shop space and permission to use basic hand tools during open hours.
- Get trained. Additional Machine Specific Training is required to use other equipment in the lab.
For temporary or immediate access, a qualified individual is allowed to use the shop 1-2x pending the availability of a mentor to supervise their activities.
