Fabricademy’s diversity in terms of knowledge and skills paves the way for many professional development opportunities, setting the stage for its alumni to thrive in diverse areas which you can discover below. 

Fabricademy Network

One of the most enriching avenues for Fabricademy graduates, lies within its vibrant network. A network built across seven editions of the program and based on principles of open-source learning and hands-on practice. By collaborating with like-minded individuals within the Fabricademy ecosystem, alumni can immerse themselves further in its community even after the program.

Such an example is the creative center S-biotica founded by a collective of Fabricademy alumni who have graduated from Fab Lab Barcelona over the past years. As a non-academic institution, this collective provides a fertile ground for the continuation of alumni’s journey of exploration, pushing the boundaries of digital fabrication and biodesign in Barcelona’s context.


For those inclined towards academia, Fabricademy opens doors to a multitude of opportunities. Graduates may choose to delve deeper into their areas of expertise by pursuing doctoral studies or even becoming Fabricademy instructors themselves. By imparting knowledge and nurturing the next generation of innovators, alumni play a vital role in shaping the future landscape of digital fabrication and textiles bringing together expertise from areas such as architecture, product design, engineering or biology.

Alumni that took this route are Annah-Ololade Sangosanya who is now focused on research and Betiana Pavon who works as a Fabricademy Instructor.

With the rise of digitalization and biodesign, there exists a growing demand for hybrid profiles that seamlessly blend creativity with technical expertise. Fabricademy alumni are equipped with the knowledge to thrive in this dynamic landscape, offering a fresh perspective to brands and companies alike. The students are taught sustainable materials use, waste management and digital customization in order to rethink the industry production systems. Whether this means collaborating with renowned fashion labels, material providers or driving innovation within tech startups.
