QCC joined the United States Fab Lab Network in order to provide students and other Fab Lab users with the high-tech tools and access to people, knowledge and idea sharing throughout the 500 Fab Labs in 30 countries around the world. Fab Labs are a network of labs based on the original concept from the Center of Bits and Atoms (CBA) at MIT. QCC’s Fab Lab is the first in Massachusetts.

The QCC Fab Lab is built to the educational specifications of the QuEST Center project and is equipped with a laser cutter, a vinyl cutter, 3D printers, a 3D scanner, a precision milling machine, molding and casting equipment, and soldering equipment. This equipment will be used to enhance the current curriculum in the Manufacturing Technology and other engineering technology programs.
