Engineering Building A and B

Welcome to our Makerspace

Located in the heart of Engineering Building A, the Makerspace is an environment like no other – a place which rips up the rule book on traditional disciplinary boundaries and provides the space and tools to create, manufacture, design and collaborate as part of an inclusive ecosystem of innovation.

This is a new concept at the University of Manchester, so the first year of operation will be an exciting period of experimentation, as we extend an open invitation to students, staff, partners and the wider public to get involved and help us unlock the potential in all that the Makerspace can be.

A series of pop-up and test events are scheduled for the next 12 months, as we work towards procuring an increasingly diverse range of tools and equipment to serve a variety of different communities coming into the space.

Want to know more or discuss an idea for how the Makerspace can serve you? Get in touch by email or complete this form!

We're welcoming and inclusive and try our best to never say no.

Academic Lead for Makerspace

Having joined the University in August 2022, Kamal's diverse background in Project Management spans the Automotive, Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) and Advanced Manufacturing sectors - it's this entrepreneurial spirit that Kamal is hoping to bring to the space over the next 12 months:

Kamal Qazi, Academic Lead for Makerspace

"Innovation is something I've always been passionate about - looking at process improvement and how to be a step ahead of everybody else has always been my driving force and this is the vision I want to bring to the space.

It's about creating a space that's inclusive of everybody, whatever their background or their motivation for wanting to use the space. Whatever your idea, big or small, we want to hear from you so we can hit the ground running over the next year and collect as much experience and feedback as possible in making the space the best it can be".
