Advanced Metrology

The course provides a high level route enabling engineering graduates, or engineers in industry, to acquire skills to allow them to operate effectively in a modern precision engineering manufacturing environment. This is achieved by the provision of technical modules, covering broad aspects of advanced metrology within the context of a modern manufacturing environment, and by the provision of optional modules covering the salient principal aspects of engineering management. The course will be of particular interest to engineering graduates involved with (or wishing to become involved with), precision manufacture, quality assurance, metrology and nanotechnology. Appropriate choice of optional modules encompassing relevant management techniques allow the flexibility to satisfy the needs of a variety of career paths. In the context of this course, the engineering manufacturing industry relates to the use of precision manufacturing methodologies and associated metrology as well as industries using advanced processing techniques. This involves knowledge applicable to the design and performance characterisation of precision machine tools, additive manufacturing, roll-to-roll manufacture and measurement systems as well as knowledge of micro electro mechanical systems, and nanometrology in general.

Entry requirements
