(March 11, 2014) – Students can lead the Maker Revolution with the nation’s first fully accredited Bachelor of Science degree in digital making and fabrication at the University of Advancing Technology (UAT) in Tempe, Ariz. The regionally accredited, private technology University is currently enrolling for the maker degree program’s founding class of 2014 that begins this fall.

In the first year of this product design degree program, only 45 students will get the once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become the first educated maker experts in an area of technological change reshaping the nation and world. Now, students can develop their own inventions in an exclusive, campus-wide, open-lab environment beginning their first year. As part of their curriculum, digital maker and fabrication graduates file their own U.S. patent. They learn to take an idea from concept to prototype and how to raise venture capital to bring innovation to market.
