Overview

This five-day course is focused on industrial dimensional measurement and covers four core knowledge areas: application of metrology principles, measurement and metrology assessment, continuous improvement in metrology systems and principles behind measurement equipment technologies, sensors and measurement techniques.

Course detail

Five consecutive days Monday to Friday designed to be ran at our Coventry University campus as a summer school usually in late June / early July. Candidate numbers are limited so that everyone gets the appropriate time on equipment and to engage with the teaching team.

  • The application of metrology principles using a variety of typical equipment looking at good practice and pitfalls
  • Measurement and metrology assessment, management tools, related metrology organisations and international standards
  • Continuous improvement and waste reduction in metrology systems and processes
  • The scientific principles behind measurement equipment technologies, sensors and measurement techniques

The course is taught through a variety of blended learning including lectures and activity sessions.

The intended outcomes include:

  • A broad and proficient level of understanding of the core underpinning principles of effective measurement and metrology
  • How to achieve confidence and sustainability in the measurement result
  • Selecting appropriate equipment and strategies for measurement
  • Learning good practice and getting hands on use of a variety of first principle and coordinate measuring systems related to various industrial sectors
