The UPCAM focuses on organizing and coordinating research and educational activities related to manufacturing science and Advanced Manufacturing, with the goal of enhancing the output of both. The center will facilitate faculty collaboration within the SSoE, among the schools within Pitt, and especially with external partners in industry, government and academia. The UPCAM aligns technology areas in SSOE with potential applications areas for Advanced Manufacturing in industry. This initiative is designed to leverage Pitts research strengths to appeal to external entities in industry and local, regional and national governments/agencies. Incentives include, but are not limited to, funding support, resources for proposal preparation, program management, and access to Advanced Manufacturing -related laboratories and facilities.
