61,000 sq. ft. just for you! If you can dream it, we have the tools and support you’ll need to create it.

The Susu and Mark A. Fischer '72 Engineering Design Center (FEDC) is your exclusive academic makerspace and design center that focuses on three principles:

  • Learn: Through our pop-up classes, students can learn how to access and operate equipment, tools and software, as well as topics relating to project management and design.
  • Design: We provide an innovative project design environment through our monitored support desk, tool room, large-screen computers with an extensive software array, and staff trained to assist in many disciplines.
  • Build: Spaces to build your project from start to finish, including worktables, electrical workbenches and open floor space, as well as tools, fasteners, power and other utilities.

Our state-of-the-art prototyping tools, equipment and staff support students as they create and invent. This facility offers a full-fledged machine shop, 3D printing, pop-up classes, and design and entrepreneurship support.

The FEDC is the home of activities such as Aggies Invent, Formula SAE, Women in Engineering, and the Sounding Rocketry Team. Various other competition teams use the FEDC as a home base to build and test projects, vehicles and more.
