Hours: Monday – Friday, 9AM – 5PM

The MILL will be closed for exams and winter break starting Wednesday, December 8. We plan to reopen for the Spring 2022 semester Tuesday, January 18 (tentative).

We are now using an equipment reservation form—users may reserve equipment before use, and priority will be given to users who have filled out the form. Walk-ins are still available for unreserved equipment. View our Equipment Status List for equipment availability.

COVID-19 Response: Fall 2021 Update

The MILL is requiring all users to wear a face covering in our facilities as a part of our PPE. Non-vaccinated individuals are highly encouraged to register for a free vaccine appointment here.


Safety Requirements for all Users

All users are required to complete Georgia Tech’s Lab Safety 101 and Right to Know (RTK) training, both of which can be found here. Note that RTK certification expires every year, and Lab Safety expires every 3 years.

MILL users are also required to follow all PPE requirements for MILL facilities. These include:

    • Long cotton pants
    • Closed toe shoes
    • Safety goggles (available at the door)
    • Face mask

Users are responsible for following any safety advisements made by MILL staffers and officers. Thanks for making the MILL a safe lab environment!


What is the MILL?

The Materials Innovation and Learning Laboratory (The MILL) was opened in 2016 as the first ever  undergraduate-run maker space primarily dedicated to Materials Science and Engineering. We strive to serve as a hub for experiential education in MSE by providing students with hands-on scientific training, raising student leaders and engineers, fostering interdisciplinary collaboration, and increasing accessibility to expensive equipment. We currently own over 30 pieces of equipment commonly found in both industry and in research labs, which can be used for free by all GT students and faculty. Learn more about us here.
