The Multimedia Production Center (MPC),  in the front half of the suite, supports your academic and personal multimedia projects.  The space is equipped with Mac computers running the Adobe CC suite and several other multimedia applications.  Our Loaner Pool offers free access to video camcorders, DSLR cameras, audio recorders, and more. 

[IDEAWORKS] Makerspace

The IDEAWORKS Makerspace extends the digital creative capabilities of the MPC by allowing users to design and fabricate items using modern digital tools, as well as traditional fabrication methods.  Embracing the power of maker culture, the Makerspace provides access to training and tools such as 3D Printers, laser cutting and etching, electronics prototyping, sewing, traditional fabrication tools, and more.
