Teams design, build and deploy systems to solve engineering-based problems for charities, schools and other not-for-profit organizations over the course of a semester.

Design for a Year

InnovationSpace is a transformative experience, where students build the skills of the future and develop their capacity for collaboration and innovation as they produce extraordinary projects.

Design Whenever


Ira A. Fulton Schools of Engineering offers multiple Design Experiences for students of all academic levels. Whether you are in your first year at Fulton or a graduate student, you will have opportunities to participate in a variety of activities and collaborate. This provides students earlier in their program perspectives from those who have completed internships or nearing graduation.


The Gear Box is one of our newest additions to the Fulton Design Experience. This space offers a wide variety of equipment for engineering students to check out and use for projects up to a semester at a time. This space is located in ECF 103 next to the 3D Print Lab, stop by soon to see what we have available!


Whether you are on campus or participating from afar, Fulton Design Experiences can support you. We have a series of events (Devils Invent), labs (Generator Labs and E-Spaces) and student spaces (3D Print Lab and The Gear Box) throughout the engineering buildings designed to support student projects and events.


Utilizing different forms of media such as the Design Experiences website, Zoom, Discord, and Canvas, students can stay connected with one another, faculty, and staff for frequently asked questions and upcoming event information. For in-person events we offer suitable spaces throughout the engineering buildings with technology, equipment, and skill sessions for students to utilize.
