The Postgraduate Institute for Measurement Science training is an integral part of our ambition to build a future generation of measurement experts. Training developed by NPL’s scientists and engineers and training partners, is free to all PGI students i.e. any postgraduate student working in collaboration with the National Physical Laboratory, and therefore assigned an NPL co-supervisor.
The methodology behind our training provision is to establish various sources of knowledge and expertise are available and to ensure that students discuss their training needs with their NPL co-supervisors at the earliest point in their PhD. Some supervisors require students to develop significant practical skills and use of specialist metrology equipment, whilst others will require students complete compulsory e-learning modules in addition to data analysis tools or other professional skills courses. The training is tailored to suit individual projects, and our Training Framework document highlights four main categories which are critical to a successful PhD.
Please note that credit values for each of the NPL courses have been suggested by our strategic partners, the University of Strathclyde and University of Surrey. These are provided only as a guide to higher education institutes who should allocate credits according to their own criteria. If you have any queries, please contact us.
