Precision Engineering Measurement & Design

when 8 June 2020 - 3 July 2020
language English
duration 4 weeks
credits 5 EC
fee EUR 1950

Precision Engineering Design & Measurement covers the fundamental practices common to all engineering majors in making and reporting basic engineering measurements and their use in designing high precision items. Students will learn about the engineering design process, commonly used engineering measurement tools, statistical data analysis, and standard uncertainty analysis methods. Three local tours at businesses and museums will punctuate how precision measurements are used in engineering design practice.

Course leader

Sean R. Niemi, Department of Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, University of Florida

Target group

The target group includes current university students who have completed at least one year of their studies (Bachelor's, Master's or PhD level). Working professionals with equivalent work experience are also welcome to apply.
This course is an introductory engineering course and is therefore more suitable for undergraduate level-engineers (graduates from other fields are of course welcome).

Course aim

Upon course completion students should have a working understanding of precision measurements and the engineering design process. Students will be familiar with how to approach engineering measurements, what uncertainty in measurements means in practice, and how to statistically examine engineering data in design.
