Ever wish you could see how innovative hardware is designed? Well IEEE YP has a treat for you! We have teamed up with Microsoft’s Device Labs to offer a once in a lifetime opportunity to tour the Surface laboratory! Building 87 on the Redmond campus is where the Surface devices come to life. On this 90 minute tour, you will get the chance to see state of the art equipment used to design multiple prototypes a day for their Surface Pros, Surface Laptops, and Surface Books. You’ll also get to witness how color, material, and electronics are creatively merged together to create the devices worthy of the Microsoft name. Make sure to bring your curiosity!
