Engineering Product Innovation Center

Fall 2021 Hours and Operation

EPIC hours will be 8 AM to 5 PM on weekdays. 

Depending upon demand, these hours may be expanded later in the semester.

For now, EPIC will be open for all university students on a walk-in basis. If the shop area gets too crowded we may have to limit access. The staff askes that only those building and fabricating be in the room so all may complete projects safely.


Welcome to Boston University’s Engineering Product Innovation Center (EPIC)

EPIC is an impressive 15,000 square foot, multi-million dollar engineering and manufacturing hub located in the heart of BU’s Charles River Campus.

At EPIC, all members of the BU community can learn the skills necessary to design and build their own ideas, gain invaluable hands-on experience in design, prototyping, and small-scale manufacturing as an integral part of a strong overall engineering education.

EPIC is aligned with the mission of the College of Engineering to create societal engineers who are prepared to step up to the ever growing need in the US, and abroad, for industry leaders who understand how to develop and manufacture innovative new products in a global environment.

With our cutting-edge facilities and equipment, the special curriculum EPIC’s reach exceeds the basic manufacturing research orientation of most university centers. The center is has a full-time staff with extensive expertise in machining, design, materials, robotics, and education.

 The center is open to all BU students, regardless of major, to receive valuable training on the entire range of relevant skill sets that are vital to product innovation—design, prototyping, material selection, and manufacturing
