Peter Benkó


Peter Benkó got his PhD. degree at the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Slovak University of Technology in 2006. As a Research assistant, during his activities at the university, he took part in many projects, from which the most important are mentioned below.

His main research topic was focused on the application of modern statistical methods for evaluation of measurement and for evaluation of measurement uncertainties for various measurements and calibration. He has experience in industrial metrology from automotive industry. He also worked in the legal metrology sphere for 7 years in various positions.

All of his activities were concerned with the development of measurement techniques and designing calibration and verification methods for measurement instruments. He is also certified professional for coordinate metrology, calibration of dimensional and temperature measurement instruments.
