EDAD333 MassMaker Studio 3 cr


MassMaker is an interdisciplinary, mixed media design studio program focused on an
entrepreneurial approach to the making of things. The course simulates the development cycle of
ideas from inspiration, through design and development, prototyping and fabrication, and
creation and marketing. Working in teams with other students from different disciplines,
students gain leadership, collaboration, and design skills in a problem based, hands on
environment of shared success.

Students form teams, create a problem statement, propose an idea to solve the stated problem,
design their solution, prototype and fabricate it using a mixture of means and methods including
digital design (3D Modeling, Parametric Design, Finite Analysis), digital prototyping and
fabrication (3D Printing, CNC Controlled, Laser Cutters) traditional crafts (Wood, Metal,
Composites shops), and the present their concept using digital design and graphics techniques
including printed material, digital media, animation, or interactive media. Fabrication and
prototyping takes place in shops and labs located throughout the Mass Art campus. Studio space for
design and assembly will be provided to each team.
