International training open to all

For the 2nd year, AgriLab UniLaSalle is recognized as an accredited training center by the FabAcademy.

In this context, the UniLaSalle Agricultural Collaborative Innovation Centre opens registrations for its training course "Learning Rapid Prototyping in 6 Months".

The objective of the training is to learn how to "Make (almost) everything" through a different pedagogy: distributed training.

This 6-month program, in English, will start in January 2021 and will allow to learn rapid prototyping by making a personal project, whatever it is.

The flexibility of this program is illustrated by the diversity of projects: digital musical instrument, kinetic sculpture, home automation, prostheses, drone, robot, connected object, agricultural or geology equipment...

The work, supervised by 2 trainers, is to be carried out with AgriLab equipment (located on the Beauvais campus).

Each week, the students participate in a global network via an online campus, composed of about 250 students in 70 FabLabs around the world.
