Users must complete Badges prior to using tools and machines at any Makersapce. If you are unsure which badge training to complete read the information below or search the machine database to learn what badge you require to access particular machines.
Most Badges are recognised across the multiple locations within the UNSW Makerspace Network. To learn more about accessing the UNSW Makerspace Network head to the UNSW Making Website.
All students must complete Workshop Safety Badge to access the Engineering Makerspaces. Workshop Safety Inductions are run throughout term with intensive training offered at the beginning of each term for DESN1000 students, so be sure to book early so you don’t miss out on this vital training!
Course conveners within the Engineering Faculty could contact the Makerspace Staff directly about any specific classes and training for your courses.
For first year engineering students enrolled in the DESN1000 course, depending on which stream of the course you are in, it may be compulsory for you to complete the Workshop Safety Badge. Please refer to your moodle course for more information.
We welcome users from outside of the Faculty of Engineering however during the start of semester we typically prioritise first year Engineering students due to a requirement for their course. If you have any other information, please chat with a staff member or email us!
