In the electronics workshop it is possible to make electronic interfaces for (interactive) installations using sensors, electric motors, media players, computers et cetera. Most projects will incorporate Arduino or Raspberry Pi programmable controller boards. It is also possible to write your own computer program using the Max/Msp or Python languages. There is intensive collaboration with the metal workshop and other workshops when building electromechanical installations and robotics.

The Rijksakademie is a two-year residency programme that annually offers 50 artists space for research, experimentation and for the production of new work.

Residents are supported with a studio, a work budget and a stipend and can seek advice from leading art professionals from a wide variety of cultural and creative backgrounds. In addition there is a rich research and production infrastructure, consisting of various technical workshops operated by specialists, a library and a historical and contemporary art collection.

Within the interdisciplinary environment of the Rijksakademie there is complete freedom in research and working methods.
