What is the Advanced Maker Diploma?
The Advanced Maker Diploma is a training program designed to allow the makers to develop their hands-on experience with digital fabrication tools and rapid-prototyping techniques that can be utilized within a Fab Lab.
Participants will be planning and executing diverse high-fidelity projects, resulting in a personal portfolio of technical accomplishments.
We are adapting the horizontal learning approach by tackling different tracks, instead of going deep into one topic, including:
Digital Fabrication and CNC Machines
Design for Digital Fabrication
Electronics Development and PCB Production
