Reception, Virtual Reality, Conference Room & Workshop

The engineers emerging from universities today are expected to be critical thinkers, team participants, leaders and problem solvers. Dedicating Collaboration Space in the makerspace fosters these important workplace skills, giving ODU engineers an edge.

EMIC Collaboration Space

Biomedical, Electrical & Electronics

Modern equipment for key research that can transform lives—such as an ongoing ODU engineering project investigating muscle exercise metabolism in diabetes.

  • Leica Stereo Microscope and Camera
  • Boekel Incubator
  • Boekel Scientific UV Crosslinker

3D Printing, Audio & Video Production

As more enterprises use 3D printing to make their products, additional opportunities are created in the workforce. Companies in manufacturing, aerospace, healthcare and other industries need graduates who understand the technology and are experts in 3D design.
