Material Innovation Centre (MIC)
NOTE: The MIC will be closed for the summer as of April 6, 2018 (last day of class). If you need any materials for your thesis or crit projects, please sign them out ASAP. You will need to return them to Room 570a on April 24 & 25th.
The Material Innovation Centre is located in Room 530, to the right of the open space on Level 5 of 100 McCaul St. We open the centre to students when we have monitors available to assist them. Our monitors are briefed on different materials, equipment, data bases, etc. If a monitor is away for his/her shift, the centre will be closed.
