Precision Engineering Measurement & Design

when 10 June 2019 - 5 July 2019
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 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 course is aimed at students from all engineering majors.

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.
