Innovation Co-Lab Training

A girl ready for some classes

Our goal is to empower the Duke Community to create and innovate, and that sometimes starts with learning new skills. We offer classes in a variety of tech topics, from web design to programming to arts and fabrication. Courses are organized into tracks where students can string together several workshops to get a deep dive in a topic, or just pick a la carte to take the courses that most interest you.

Check out our calendar below to see our class schedule, or browse our different tracks to craft your own personal curriculum.
