Need a place that fosters innovation and invention? The Rutgers Makerspace, located at the Center for Innovation Education on the Rutgers Livingston Campus, provides students, educators, and entrepreneurs with a hands-on learning environment that is part classroom, part workshop, and part think tank. Also known as ‘hackerspaces’, ‘fab labs’, and ‘makelabs’, makerspaces are creative laboratories where members with common interests such as engineering, computer programming, inventing, graphic design, and others gather to share resources and knowledge, network, and build innovative creations.

Rutgers EMBA gave engineer a perspective that proved beneficial as he climbed company ranks

GREGORY SAUTER, A LICENSED PROFESSIONAL ENGINEER

Gregory Sauter, an executive with the engineering titan AECOM Technology Corp. and a Rutgers Executive MBA alumnus, is happy to talk about the non-traditional start of his career.

Sauter veered from tradition when he realized he couldn’t muster up any excitement for his college liberal arts courses. After his first year, he packed up his bags and returned home to forge a more challenging path into the future: With little to draw on except having helped his father fix things around the house and some summer jobs, he started a construction company of his own.

“I wasn’t inspired,” he said, recalling his decision to abandon college and start working on his own. “What interested me was working with my hands and creating something.”
