The Dalle Molle Institute for Artificial Intelligence (IDSIA USI-SUPSI), a joint USI-SUPSI institute, is located in sector C, in a position that connects the two universities.

The Department is completed by the nearby building at Via Balestra 16, which hosts the Institute for Systems and Applied Electronics (ISEA), with its technological laboratories dedicated to applied scientific research and spaces for education activities.
