There are five academic departments in the Faculty of Engineering:


Maker Bubble situated in IT Zone of the Learning Garden is a Makerspace equipped with fabrication tools and a collaborate workspace to accommodate 8-10 people for makers to create, learn, explore and share new ideas.  The spaces are open to current CUHK students and staff.

 

Strategy

Our strategy for having such a service in the Learning Garden is to inspire the students to explore new interests in design. We also advocate peer-to-peer 3D printing support to engage students of all academic disciplines.  Such a service, therefore, not only builds a creative ambience and culture for the students, but also encourages cross-discipline collaboration.

 

A Gateway to Makerspace

Maker Bubble is a fabrication and co-working space where various specialist manufacturing tools and equipment are made available for makers either alone or in groups to prepare prototypes.  The Library’s Maker Bubble is a welcoming space for students, who dare to think and create, and to bring their inventions into daily life.

With a sound foundation and our experience in 3D printing and scanning, the Library is planning to move forward to set up a Makerspace equipped both with fabrication equipment and a studio for video production in the near future.
