The purpose of the CSI industry affiliates program is to increase interaction between CSI researchers and practicing engineers. Through this interaction, CSI researchers learn more about the practical constrainsts and design challenges facing engineers in military and commercial systems. Our affiliates learn of the cutting edge methods being researched at CSI and can discuss their potential applicability to their systems.
Being a CSI affiliate involves some financial support of our program. This can be directed to a particular faculty member or research area, or it can be a gift in support of CSI. These funds are critically important to maintaining the infrastructure for interation at CSI.
