When you take an Inworks course, the process of innovation is demystified. In our prototyping labs you can learn to 3D print, solder a circuit, or grow a biomaterial. Because it’s important to make things that matter, you’ll learn the human-centered design process; it will guide you as you move from problem to prototype. But don’t expect to do it alone, because Inworks is a space that catalyzes meaningful collaboration. Students of all majors will find a place here.
No matter what problem you’re trying to solve, people are at the center. Join us at Inworks, where you’ll learn the process and principles of Human-Centered Design thinking, collaborate with leaders, learners and innovators from across disciplines, and develop mindsets and habits that will bring the work you’re passionate about to a whole new level.
Inworks offers a Graduate Certificate for dedicated learners, as well as a variety of workshops and opportunities for collaboration.
For University Faculty + Staff
Collaborate with colleagues from diverse academic and technical backgrounds to gain new perspectives on your work, or to develop motivating curricula for the students or teams you’re leading.
Using human-centered design principles and a creative, interdisciplinary approach to whatever project you bring to the table, our faculty and staff can collaboratively assist you to drive your efforts toward outcomes that really matter. Or, enroll in workshops or courses to augment your expertise.
For Clinicians + Researchers
Bring your innovative idea to life! Collaborate with us to develop custom devices for specific clinical use-cases or tools to advance your research. Our experienced, interdisciplinary team sets the standard for project mentoring and support, offering creative and technical guidance driven by human-centered design principles.
Work with us to fully explore your idea, then take it beyond paper using our digital fabrication equipment to iteratively design and test functional prototypes.
We offer you and your students a space for interdisciplinary learning, not just for making things, but for building the skills, ideas, and relationships that contribute to solving important human problems. Experiencing a higher education environment is beneficial not only for students who may choose a college path, but also for those who might take their abilities in a totally different direction.
Your students can tour our lab, participate in an experiential workshop, or for high schoolers, work as an intern for more intensive exposure to interdisciplinary innovation.
