Get Trained

BeAM is an amazing resource for any student, faculty member or staff member at UNC. To get started, all users must take BeAM Orientation to be able to work in our makerspaces in Murray Hall, Hanes Art Center, and Carmichael Residence Hall.

After taking Orientation, you must take additional tool trainings to learn how to use equipment beyond our basic hand tools. For example, interested in learning how to use the laser cutter? Attend one of our 50-minute laser cutter tool trainings to gain access to this tool. We offer tool trainings for our 3D printers, laser cutters, vinyl cutters, sewing machines, woodshop, and more. Check out the BeAM schedule for more info!

Visit Us!

The BeAM Design Center @ Rosenau is a unique resource for design and fabrication assistance located in Rosenau Hall at the University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill. Our mission is to facilitate and complement research of all types by providing engineering consultation, design, fabrication, assembly, and select repair services in a wide range of disciplines. Historically our facility was an instrumentation shop within the Department of Environmental Sciences and Engineering. Now, the Design Center has evolved to become a key element in BeAM’s support of research at UNC.
