M.S. in Connected Systems

The Connected Systems Institute is collaborating with UWM’s College of Engineering and Applied Science and the Lubar School of Business to develop a Master’s of Science in Connected Systems. The development of this program responds to the need to prepare students for careers in connected systems in the manufacturing industry.

The program is designed so that students will have a set of core courses that will present the fundamentals of connected systems, followed by a collection of technical electives, which are categorized to emphasize four focus areas:

  • ERP/Supply Chain
  • Cyber Manufacturing
  • Mechatronics/Robotics/Digital Twins
  • AI/Machine Learning

The curriculum will involve the usage of case scenarios from the CSI manufacturing testbed and the digital twins lab. Students will engage in a capstone project that will enable them to demonstrate applied knowledge in select real-world projects with real-world datasets.
