CNM Makerspace Tour
Students participating in the First Joint SIPI and NTU Advanced Manufacturing Technology Summer Institute visited the New Mexico MakerSpace small business incubation facility on July 7, 2017.
Students visited the MakerSpace small business incubation facility where they got to see specialty equipment such as a snow board press, plasma cutter, diamond cutters and laser engravers.
Summer Institute Program student Anthony Horning says "It was nice to see the facility and their different tools, I think as engineering majors we are more likely to start our own businesses and it was a good opportunity to get a peek into what those small businesses might look like."
