The USC Maker Space is the first FabLab in Queensland, Australia housed within the School of Business and Creative Industries at the University of the Sunshine Coast. The lab hosts innovative interdisciplinary research and facilitates project-based learning with access to a range of advanced state of the art technologies. The USC Maker Space brings together students and academics with community and industry to incubate new ideas in an inclusive and exploratory environment. The lab is connected to the design program at USC, a future-focused degree that provides students with creative inspiration, world-class knowledge and critical interdisciplinary skills to create and navigate a world that is changing rapidly. We connect local students, community and innovators with the global FabLab network to facilitate technological empowerment and knowledge sharing to address some of the most challenging issues of our time.

Design at USC is an interdisciplinary program with dynamic pathways that encourage students to discover their creativity and develop critical thinking through experimentation in an inclusive and exploratory environment. Through project-based learning and collaborations, students discover the increasingly important role design plays in the world, with opportunities to specialise in interactive media, digital culture, game design or visual communication. This versatile interdisciplinary program equips students with theoretical knowledge, creative skills, cultural awareness and critical thinking to imagine and shape a future that is changing rapidly by design.
