How It Works

For the second year, Berytech Fab Lab allows you to be part of the global Fab Academy, a distributed educational program on Digital Fabrication, directed by Neil Gershenfield of MIT’s Center For Bits and Atoms, and delivered simultaneously in more than 60 fab labs across the world.

The Fab Academy Diploma consists of 19 different certificates in digital fabrication tools and disciplines, to be completed within 5 months, from January to June 2019.

During the Fab Academy program, global lectures are broadcasted every Wednesday. In Berytech Fab Lab, we meet every Wednesday to review the local weekly assignments and follow the global lecture together. The Thursdays are dedicated to the local classes whose topics vary each week. During the other days of the week, students have access to the Fablab machines, tools, and support.
