The Makerspace is our most well-equipped facility, located in 18AB04 (fourth floor of AB, just inside the EE undergraduate labs by the AA/AB stairwell). It is open to all EARS members via swipe card access, upon completion of health and safety training, and at a cost of £5/yr.


As a modern electronics lab, the Makerspace contains all the equipment you might need for your projects. This includes (but is by no means limited to): 4-channel digital oscilloscopes, digital function generators, programmable power supplies, microcontroller programmers, and soldering stations.

We also keep a stock of common components (resistors, capacitors, transistors etc.) which are there for use by our members. Restocking is covered by the £5 access fee.

3D Printing & CNC

EARS has a 3D printer and a good stock of printer filament, in a range of colours. The printer is a key part of many society and personal projects, and is available for members, once they’ve been trained on its operation and maintenance.

Additionally, we own a CNC milling machine, which we hope to make available to members in the near future.


An area of the Makerspace is set up for fabrication, as many projects will have a mechanical aspect to them. We have a range of hand and machine tool available to our members, including saws, drills, files, and screwdrivers.
