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 currenlty 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.
