The Grad Lab offers workshops on a variety of subjects. The Workshops listed here are open to all MICA graduate students. All graduate students are encouraged to attend as it never hurts to learn something new and some checkout equipment is restricted to those students who have attended a workshop on it's proper operation and handling. These Workshops are meant to serve as both an introduction to various topics as well as a survey of the tools, equipment and workflow the Lab has in place. Workshops are held in the Grad Lab unless otherwise noted.



If there is a subject you or your program might be interested in, please send us an email through our Contact page. You can also view past Grad Lab workshops here to help give you an idea of some of the topics that have been covered in the past.
