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.
