Located on the second floor of NMSU’s Engineering Complex 1, the AIS is a student-managed makerspace established to give students, faculty, and community members access to state-of-the-art resources to help foster innovation and entrepreneurship. The Innovation Space serves as a gathering point where students, researchers, and everyone in between can connect to work on projects.

Students have access to experienced mentors, new technologies and the latest engineering design software and tools.  The AIS is equipped with 3D printers, a fully-stocked electronics lab, a variety of sensors and programmable development boards, robotics kits, extensive multi-disciplinary software, and low-resolution prototyping materials to aid in the creation of innovative technologies.
