Sample Student Work

Guy Gardner teaches an Introduction to Robotic Fabrication course every year. Headmesh explores robotic fabrication through the hot wire cutting of ready-made foam heads and utilizes a language of repetition and hybridity to evoke phenomenological responses.


With a rich, interdisciplinary
design-based philosophy, an
entrepreneurial mindset and a proven
commitment to working with industry
stakeholders, our students are prepared
for meaningful professional careers that
make a real, long-lasting difference.
