Fundamentals of Metrology course

09 October 2017 - 12 October 2017

"If you cannot measure it, you cannot improve it." – Lord Kelvin

Do you want to gain competitive advantage by demonstrating high-accuracy measurements in your manufacturing production processes?

With markets and customers increasingly taking a more critical view of manufacturers' ability to rigorously prove their capabilities, the Fundamentals of Metrology course gives attendees rare access to world leaders in measurement science from NPL, the UK's National Measurement Institute.

The four-day series of seminars is designed to help you achieve and prove ultra-precision in science and engineering, and includes:

  • Detailed insights into engineering measurement science and processes in the disciplines of length, mass, temperature, humidity and force
  • Tours of NPL's dimensional, mass and temperature laboratories
  • First-hand summary of changes coming in 2018–19 to the International System of Units (SI), which is used as the basis for all measurements, from those who have been leading its development
  • A three-course dinner

100% of attendees at previous course sessions would recommend the course*
