Training Sessions and Seminars

At the beginning of each semester, the IE University Fab Lab offersa series of basic and advanced training sessions for both architecture and design students. The aim is to train students on how to use the vast range of resources in a safe and response manner. During these sessions, you will discover how to operate each machine, while understanding their capabilities, limitations, and the objects they can create. What’s more, if necessary you will learn how to prepare files to be processed by the machines.

Apart from these training sessions, throughout the year the Fab Lab also organizes other workshops and seminars. Some of these are led by specialized artists and professionals, focused on more specific techniques and materials, such as ceramics, 3D printing, silicone and resin casting, and wood joinery. In these, participants can experience the materials first hand, and try out techniques to apply in their own future projects.
