The Prototyping Labs are unique because they feature high quality, integrated instruction and crew services alongside the resources found in more traditional shops. UW students in the MSTI program have access to a wide variety of high quality tools and technologies (like the 4x8 #CNC router table shown here), but also a crew of people dedicated to both helping with tool questions and collaboratively working through design challenges.

We are excited to be preparing our building and Prototyping Labs for physically distanced tours for admitted students to come and see where they could be working on projects this coming Fall! Looking forward to the next installment of the Visit Day experience,  and even more excited about preparations as we move back towards a safe, in-person class experience. 🎉

Members of the GIX Consortium gathered Friday to mark the start of a new project year working with @uofwa students in the MS in Technology Innovation  program. Over the next six months these interdisciplinary student and industry Launch Project teams will create high-impact technology solutions to address societal challenges in the areas of health, environment, and more. Past projects have included a system for monitoring plastic waste in waterways, a drone that aids in search-and-rescue activities, ear infection sensing earbuds, and more. This year, GIX welcomes returning members @Microsoft, @tmobile , and @vulcaninc as well as new partners @fetchrobotics and Kinova. The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (@noaa ) and Washington Department of Natural Resources (Wildfires Division- @washdnr ) will bring new projects, expertise, and mentors.

Built for Innovation

Designed specifically for the GIX program, the GIX Steve Ballmer building offers a hands-on learning environment featuring electronic prototyping labs, design studios, AR/VR technology, and more.

About the GIX Facilities

Real World Challenges

GIX learners have opportunities to collaborate with leading industry and nonprofit organizations on key projects to develop high-tech solutions to local and global challenges.

Launch Projects
The great part about GIX is they encourage you to take risks; you have all the facilities and resources you need. Fundamentally, the University of Washington is a collaborative space, and we’re all working toward the same goal.
