Innovative Collaboration Space
ICS, The Innovation Collaboration Space, is state of art technology space designed to promote the culture of innovation and collaboration among UCONN Stamford community. Opened in the mid fall of 2017, ICS is unique in its offering.
Students and faculty members get the opportunity to work with advanced software applications used in the industry such as Maya and Adobe Suite. The LulzBot 3D Printers enable students to print 3D models and serve as a test bench to understand the intricacies involved in designing real world objects. The space also offers software programmers the necessary tools to build mobile apps for android and iOS and develop expertise in various programming languages such as Java, Python and C++. Ever thought if there’s anything for Data Scientists. The answer is yes. ICS does offer you the necessary software such as RStudio, Minitab, SAS etc., to perform sophisticated statistical modelling. In addition, VR oculus and raspberry pies certainly expands the opportunity set available for students across different majors to innovate and succeed in their careers.
ICS gets more color from its unique audio editing station powered by Ableton software and synthesizer, RODE microphones and best in-class Yamaha speakers. The audio editing station offers students an excellent opportunity to unleash their power of creativity.
