A series of seminars developed by the Engineering Division at MIT Lincoln Laboratory introduced researchers to its in-house fabrication techniques and new capabilities.

Complementing the Laboratory’s focus on building prototypes, the series has not only made researchers aware of the options available but also shown fabrication alternatives that could improve designs and decrease costs for components. A special seminar on prototyping, given by Zoz Brooks, formerly of MIT’s Media Lab, provided a look at new computer-aided design methods.
