MSD Robotics Lab

The MSD Robotics lab is an advanced experimental fabrication facility within the Melbourne School of Design at the University of Melbourne. The MSD Robotics Lab uses a project-based model to develop research capabilities around the application of robots to Architecture and Construction. The Lab also assists in the translation of these capabilities to teaching and learning. The Robotics Lab is opening to all staff and students within the University of Melbourne. We are also open to working with industry. Please contact us if you have any questions about the lab.
