USC Viterbi’s new Center for Advanced Manufacturing opens in downtown L.A.

The USC Viterbi School of Engineering has opened its new Center for Advanced Manufacturing (CAM) this month in downtown Los Angeles. The 6,000-square-foot facility brings together faculty with expertise in machine learning, augmented and virtual reality and affordable 3-D printing, among other areas. The center also serves as the Southern California hub for a new U.S. Department of Defense-sponsored institute focusing on robotic manufacturing.

“The USC Center on Advanced Manufacturing is poised to become the premier research and innovation center on advanced manufacturing in the greater Los Angeles area,” said USC Viterbi Dean Yannis C. Yortsos. “It will serve the academic community and also help support the fast-growing technological ecosystem in Silicon Beach.

“We envision CAM to become the incubator for the development of unprecedented new opportunities in design, making and automation and be a lab for the businesses and jobs of the future,” said Dean Yortsos.
