Purdue’s Bechtel Center is a first-of-its-kind Makerspace for Purdue students. Located in the heart of campus, students from all colleges can access and learn to use Bechtel Center equipment to design and build innovative solutions to real-world problems. Students propose a project, a mentor evaluates this and provides consultation, a work plan is created including needed equipment and materials. Scheduling and training with the equipment, as per plan, happens as the work proceeds.
The center also hosts multidisciplinary long-term students projects, such as solar and electric vehicles, prototype energy-efficient homes and bridges, accessible playgrounds, and competition teams. By becoming a member of the Bechtel Center you will support and gain access to these driven, innovative students with industry-ready skills.
