Originally founded as a club to give MIT students free and open access to computers, MITERS now features a mill, lathe, band saws, welders, and other hands-on tools, in addition to a host of oscilliscopes, high-end soldering irons, and other EE prototyping tools. It’s a member-run creative haven and build-anything-you-want, if-you-break-it,-fix-it space.
We’re MIT’s only student-run shop and we’re funded entirely through a portion of proceeds from Swapfest, the MIT Electronics Flea Market.
Build parties are Fridays at 7 pm (running past midnight), feel free to pop in and say hi!
