The Fikalab ISEC aims to create an environment for experimentation, ideas development and healthy fun inside ISEC. The drive is to connect the academia to the real world, having great ideas for “things” and actually build them, challenging the status quo. For us, the world can always be better and we want to do something about it. We want to take action. This is what the Fikalab ISEC is all about!
This is a space for you to experiment whatever you want. There is a minimum set of rules to help everything run smoothly, but that's it! You can check the rules here.
The lab has a complete set of equipment for you to start your projects. The full list can be found using this link.
If your project has some specific needs, you don't even have to pay, just contact the Fikalab ISEC commission.
The Fikalab ISEC Challenge is back! Following the success of the last edition, and to bring more fun and some positive competitive spirit to the lab, the challenge is back for another edition.
