Academia

Join our vibrant data education community of educators, students academic researchers, and industry collaborators. Help build the next generation of industrial leaders and solve critical challenges using the PI System and OSIsoft Cloud Services (OCS).

  • Classroom

    Students and educators analyze real operational data sets using industry tools, giving students a real-world industrial experience in the classroom and in the lab.

  • Connected Research

    Academic institutions collaborate with industry partners to conduct advanced engineering research.

  • Smart campus

    Students participate in “living labs,” building practical career skills while helping to improve campus efficiency and sustainability.

Participating in the program is easy and secure for industry and academia

  • Academic Hub

    Powered by OCS, the cloud-native industrial data management system, the Academic Hub provides a connective hub for academia and industry to securely and easily collaborate using shared data and common technologies. Using cloud-based OCS allows for a minimal on-premise footprint.

  • Eligibility

    Industrial companies who support our mission to help university students build their professional skills are welcome to join our data education community as an industry partner. University faculty, researchers and students are welcome to register online.

  • Classroom

    Educators collaborate with industry partners to produce curriculum, and industry partners can share their operational data and challenges with us, which we distribute to participating universities securely through the Academic Hub.

  • Connected Research

    We enable industry to work with academia to drive innovation that supports business goals, enriches academic research, and helps to build the workforce of tomorrow.

Experiential learning in the classroom

Students have a rich, hands-on experience using industry tools to analyze data from real industrial processes as well as their on-campus lab experiments. Students cultivate highly sought-after data skills in preparation for careers in the essential industries.
