The first one is a co-working zone, where we have a training laboratory, modern design tools, 3D scanner, several 3D printers, computer equipment, an interactive board, etc. Another zone is a fabrication with real equipment: small and large mills (gantry, 3 AX), millturn machine (diameter length up to 300-1400mm), laser engravers-cutters (CO2) workbenches, equipped with with manual and electric tools; pneumatic kit (for painting and not only), cutting plotter, etc.. This is the uniqueness of the Center - all the necessary modern equipment for implementation your own ideas and projects is in one place!”.
The establishment of such a Center expands the opportunities especially for engineering students. “Our department trains specialists in the field of mechanical engineering. The opening of this Innovation Center greatly expands our opportunities. Here are all the technologies used in real production”, - told the head of the Department of Computerized Engineering, professor Vitalii Panchuk.
The representatives of the university administration, directors of the institutes, members of the project team 2SOFT/1.2/86 «Ro-Ua Trans-Border Academic Development for Research and Innovation», teachers, students, residents attended the opening ceremony.
