Mill 19 is a discovery workspace where Carnegie Mellon innovators partner with industry pioneers to apply digital innovation, advanced manufacturing technology, and human intelligence to the production of the future.

Built on the 178-acre Hazelwood Green site, Mill 19 once served as the location of the Pittsburgh region’s most productive steel mills. Today, it is the headquarter location for Carnegie Mellon University’s Manufacturing Futures Institute (MFI) and home to some of the most advanced manufacturing research being done in the U.S.

MFI and its affiliates, the Advanced Robotics for Manufacturing (ARM) Institute and the Catalyst Connection workforce training center, occupy Building A of the 265,000 square-foot Mill 19 complex. Carnegie Mellon engineers and scientists have access to 60,000 square feet of space that includes an additive manufacturing laboratory, modern workshop, low bay and high bay project areas, flexible and collaborative workspaces, and conference and meeting facilities.
