About Us

The University of Pittsburgh operates dozens of advanced laboratories and shared research facilities positioned to serve industry.

Some of the most advanced equipment in the world can be used to serve your company’s research and development needs.

The Making Research Work effort is a part of the overall corporate engagement framework at the University of Pittsburgh. Aimed at creating and sustaining multi-threaded and mutually beneficial partnerships with industry, the University of Pittsburgh’s Corporate Engagement Group brings together all that the University of Pittsburgh has to offer – from world class research, to student recruitment and from graduate and continuing education, to use of our leading edge research facilities.

Offering multiple pathways to engage these resources, our faculty and staff can perform work in a fee-for-service mode, or can train your staff to work in our facilities in third-party on-site service. These, along with other engagement pathways, allow the University of Pittsburgh to provide access to advanced research technology and our world class faculty to serve your company’s needs.
