What We Do




Microfacturing Institutes’ courses are flexible and highly relevant, and can be delivered with expert instructors and professors for personalized learning. We have cultivated a vibrant ecosystem of instructors, industry, and universities to continue to develop new content and improve our existing coursework.

As a public benefit corporation, we work with educators who can deliver this educational experience at a low cost. We currently are operating with courses being offered in Silicon Valley, and will begin to scale to new locations and schools later this year.

Our business model is to build state-of-the-art courses and to continuously invest in them to keep them that way. We typically work with sponsors and donors that can invest in sponsoring full course developments, SmartWorld Projects, or to help with student mentorship.

  • Deliver superior hands-on learning experience with leading-edge techniques and technology.
  • We emphasize project-based learning.
  • Use both instructed and on-line learning techniques to leverage the best of both approaches.
  • Work directly with industry leaders to provide continuous improvement for products, services, and to update educational content.
  • We invest in our instructors and educational leaders.
  • Qualified instructors have multiple opportunities for personal and career development sponsored by Microfacturing Institutes.

Directly influence the educational content and student mentorship to build the next generation of product creators, inventors, users, and business people.

The minimum level of corporate sponsorship involves providing student mentorship via online discussion forums or working directly with student cohorts. We expect industry sponsors to offer interviews of qualified and motivated students for paid internships or full-time jobs.

Our lead corporate sponsors work directly with Microfacturing Institutes to create new course content, update projects and laboratories, and often join our advisory board to continue to improve our offerings. Donations and employee volunteer time are candidates for a tax deduction through our charitable corporation status.
