FabAca­demy

Would you like to work within innovation and design? Or start your own tech-company? FabAcademy provides you with the skills and the international network to make your dream come true!

FabAcademy gets you skilled in fast prototyping and access to a great international network, during 20 intense weeks of hands-on learning!

You will attend a live masterclass led by Neil Gershenfeld (prof. at MIT), Director of the FabAcademy Programme. You will get an assignment on a new topic every week: CAD, Project Management, Electronics, Programming, 3D-printing, Laser cutting, Interface design, etc.

The masterclass takes place once a week at 3pm by video conference in FabLab Spinderihallerne Vejle. Between classes, you complete weekly assignments and work on your chosen final project in FabLab Spinderihallerne, while documenting your process on a personal webpage.

FabAcademy runs from January to July 2019.

Certificates are handed over by FabFoundation* at the graduation ceremony, during Fab15 Conference. The conference takes place in Egypt in early August 2019.


Are you prepared? We think so, if you:

  • can use a PC/MAC and consider yourself technologically inclined in general.

  • love to create with your hands and make your own designs, and have a project idea that is important enough for you to work 30 hours per week on it throughout the duration of the course.
