Southwest Illinois Advanced Manufacturing Center (SIAM)


There are very few university-based advanced manufacturing centers that fill the same niche as the SIUE School of Engineering's Southwest Illinois Advanced Manufacturing (SIAM) Center.

With a staff of faculty investigators from each of the School of Engineering disciplines, the SIAM Center assists small- to moderately-sized established and start-up enterprises in activities including prototype design and fabrication, product development, process optimization and new technology development. Collectively, these activities help create and sustain technical and manufacturing enterprises in southwestern and central Illinois.
