FIT's Faculty Research Space is an interdisciplinary lab space intended to foster work across schools, and support a commitment to technology, innovation, and exploration, along with research and development. Faculty can explore on their own, collaborate, and/or bring students into the lab for demonstrations. 

The FRS is designed to give faculty members the opportunity to:

  • explore and assess new technologies;
  • experiment and engage with new materials;
  • determine technology's potential for pedagogical purposes or for development of new areas of scholarship and research; and
  • have a dedicated space to meet and work collaboratively on new initiatives, research, and scholarship.

The FRS is staffed by qualified IT personnel.
