Metrology and Quality Control for Precision Manufacturing

Metrology is the science of measurement. It is used in the design and production of almost everything we use on a day-to-day basis. This certificate will enable the student to seek employment as an inspector of manufactured parts with the successful completion of two semesters of course and lab work. The program has a mix of machining courses, CADD courses, manufacturing courses, as well as a new course that concentrates on the specifics of inspection and metrology. Students will be able to utilize state-of-the-art manufacturing machinery, including CNC-programmed lathes and milling machines, as well as the latest in coordinate measuring machines (CMM).

Metrology workers are employed in a variety of industries and have different job duties. Metrology workers can go by a number of different titles, e.g., Calibration Engineers, Calibration Technicians, Instrument Engineers, Instrument Technicians, Engineering Technician, Metrologists, Metrology Engineers, Metrology Specialists and Quality Engineers.
