AKGEC, Ghaziabad has established Fab Lab in response to the need arising from students requiring a dedicated space and appropriate equipment to develop their projects. Since then it evolved from being just a product development center to a facility focussed on promoting innovation, imparting much-needed skills for innovators and help developing competency across different disciplines including mechanical, electronics and embedded development areas.This is done through providing access to tool, capabilities and knowledgeable trainers and gurus who can help anyone bring their ideas to reality.

The center hosts rapid prototyping tools, training kits hardware and software which can be used to train on and fabricate using digital fabrication techniques. It aims to provide training to undergraduates and postgraduates and young kids and to engage with the local community of makers and innovators and.These training and experience in digital fabrication techniques not only allows students to apply their theory in practice enhancing their learning of fundamental engineering but is also meant to cater to the need of the hour that is achieving self-sustainability through innovation and entrepreneurship.
