Welcome back to campus Tar Heels! While many of you have been away, BeAM has made some exciting changes (check out our new training system, which blends online Sakai modules with in-person practice projects!), but we continue to offer open makerspaces full of tools, equipment, and trained support staff. Take our BeAM 101 training to get started on projects, or stop by our Murray or Carmichael makerspaces to use a button maker!

Minor in Applied Sciences and Engineering!

APS offers a minor that trains students with an engineering and entrepreneurial mindset. Build on the foundation from your math and science courses and engage in hands-on engineering applications of real-world challenges. Don’t want to commit to a minor?
