Our Fab Lab at NOVA Manassas is making great progress and on track to open in January, 2020. The Fab Lab will support NOVA’s industry-aligned AAS in Engineering Technology.
Once finished, the Fab Lab will offer state-of the art equipment for instructional and training use such as modular automation systems, high and low voltage electronics, fluid and power control systems and a full “Smart Factory” mechatronics system to teach how to control manufacturing, maintenance, inventory and supply chain operations.
In addition, the Fab Lab will contain a Makerspace featuring a 3D scanner, 3D printers, laser engraver, plastic thermoforming machine, a vinyl printer/cutter and a full woodworking shop as well as a computer aided design (CAD) computer lab featuring SolidWorks software, all to serve as a hub to connect industry to the developing technology workforce.
The Interface will keep you updated on Fab Lab progress up until the grand opening.
