Inworks is a community, lab, workshop, space, center, and school for interdisciplinary studies.
We are artists, engineers, designers, architects, researchers, and doers at the CU Denver and Anschutz campuses.
Our 2 spaces at the University of Colorado Denver and Anschutz campuses are home to innovation daily. Come see what all the buzz is about!
Our multidisciplinary offerings are extremely valuable in today's workforce. We cover human-centered design, data science, synthetic biology, prototyping, laser cutting, and much more.
Our many research projects have won millions in grants and are focused on the problems of today, and how we can solve them tomorrow.
504+ prototypes built | 300+ check-ins monthly
Our laboratories at CU Denver and CU Anschutz are our pride and joy, where we’ve seen incredible things made, researched, ideated, and designed. Laser cutting, 3D printing, molds and CNC Lathes are just a few of the things the community and students have access to at the labs at CU Denver.
1,367+ program participants | 100+ Alumni Companies
Our primary in-house minor in Human-Centered Design explores the Inworks formula, using radical interdisciplinary collaboration, design thinking, disruptive innovation, and computational thinking to solve today's most pressing issues. In addition to exploring traditional studies, Inworks students can learn law and policy, game design, bio-design, or even how to create a start-up.
159+ projects completed | Over $600k awarded in grants
At Inworks, cutting-edge research is commonplace. Our students collaborate with each other, the community, and other institutions to create amazing things. Wristbands that glow when the user is intoxicated, PPE created for Colorado healthcare workers, and the design and prototyping of a robotic arm are just a few of the things that our students have made in the past year.
