What is the MILL?
The Materials Innovation and Learning Laboratory (The MILL) was opened in 2016 as the first-ever undergraduate-run make-and-measure space primarily dedicated to Materials Science and Engineering (MSE). We strive to serve as a hub for experiential education in MSE by providing hands-on scientific training with common equipment used in the discipline, nurturing the student staff to become engineering leaders, and fostering interdisciplinary collaboration across campus. We currently house over 30 pieces of equipment commonly found in both the materials industry and research labs — ALL of which is freely accessible to ALL GT students, faculty, and staff. Learn more about us here.
