The Innovation Labs & the DU Community

While housed in the Ritchie School the Innovation Labs serve more than just Engineering and Computer Science. Our team works with students, faculty, staff, alums, and industry to create truly interdisciplinary collaborations and foster a spirit of entrepreneurship and creativity.

    Supporting Student Programs & Initiatives

    The Innovation Labs Maker Space has become home to many student startups as well as clubs. In addition working in our space we support Project X-ITE's Incubator X program at the Cable Center allowing sutdents to prototype and design while having the support and expertise of Innovation Labs facilitators.

    Supporting Faculty Research & Curriculum

    We work with Faculty across DU to bring creativity and innovation to curriculum like when Anthropology students used our 3D Printers to create artifacts. Faculty and student researchers work with us to create functional elements for their research as well.

    A Place for Alums to Engage

    Alums have the best stories to share and our Innovation Labs community is a perfect place to share their wisdom. Whether it's speaking to a club or delivering a workshop we give alums a venue and audience to engage with our DU Community.

    Where Industry Connects with Students

    Whether an organization has new tech to showcase, are recruiting interns and employees, or want to share a workshop we make it happen.

Everybody is a maker at heart. Everybody likes to create and add value. That’s the core of what this space is about: being able to improve things and make the world a better place.
