Program Benefits

"Fab Lab"

Our new state-of-the-art digital fabrication lab is aligned with MIT's highly successful fab lab network. In our "fab lab", you'll get to build all sorts of structures, machines, mechanisms, and circuits, including a rapid prototyping machine, laser cutter, CNC mini mill, and other machine tools.

Engineering Club

The Engineering club allows you to do more than coursework and provides you with a network of colleagues that you can socialize with or do projects. Past projects include building a remote controlled semiautonomous robot and fabricating an electricity-producing wind turbine.

At the Century College Robot show you get to see all sorts of interesting contraptions. The public is invited to the show where Introduction to Engineering students display their inventions that are judged by practicing engineers.

In our popular Introduction to Engineering Class you'll "learn by doing" projects such as building a robot.
