The Institute occupies a 10,000-square-foot space in the UWM Libraries — a highly visible, central location on campus. State-of-the-art research and laboratory facilities within CSI set it apart from other university-industry consortiums studying IIoT connectivity.

CSI research facilities includes four on-campus manufacturing labs used for research, testing, and education. These test facilities give industry partners a place for experimental analyses and validation. The simulated manufacturing plant provides a work environment for students and researchers to experiment with new concepts and solutions. CSI’s facilities are designed to test IIoT solutions across domains specific to manufacturing.
