Graduate Program in Metrology
Established in 1996, the Graduate Program in Metrology (Post MQI) was, at the time of its creation, an answer of the University to an interministerial effort of the Federal Government in the context of the “RH-Metrologia" Program, to stimulate the development of qualified human resources and metrological culture. In line with the essentially multidisciplinary nature of Metrology, the Program benefits from the conjunction of laboratory skills and infrastructures existing in several departments and units of the Scientific Technical Center at PUC-Rio. Its aims at specializing on the training of well-trained engineers, physicists and chemists, enabling them to work in the interface of their specialties with measurements science.

Train human resources in Metrology in order to meet the demands of the Metrology, Normalization and Industrial Quality National System (Sistema Nacional de Metrologia, Normalização e Qualidade Industrial- Sinmetro).

The Program also meets the specific demands of companies and organizations that desire to guide the training of professionals in specific areas focused on development of competitiveness. Within this context, the Master’s course in Metrology and the Lato Sensu specialization course are offered.

BEng in Precision Engineering and Design
Precision engineering is a specialist branch of mechanical engineering which involves the design and manufacture of complex products, machines, tools and instruments, whose parts must be precisely correct in size and shape, have exceptionally tight tolerances and be produced repeatedly to exact specifications. Precision engineering is often defined as having an accuracy of1x106 - that’s one millionth of a metre, or 1 micron.
The manufacturing companies that now operate in Ireland typically design and make sophisticated products, almost always in very large quantities and with high level of precision.

This Precision Engineering programme will focus on:
  • Precision Design – product, mould, tool and machine design
  • Computer Aided Manufacture – CNC (Computer Numerical Control) programming & machining
  • Advanced Manufacturing Technologies – automation, polymer processing, materials
  • Metrology – Precision measurement and CMM (Coordinate Measuring Machine)
  • Manufacturing Requirements – validation, quality management, lean manufacturing and project management

Metrology and quality-assured measurement
Research in primary metrology motivated by an ever increasing need for accurate and efficient measurement in industry, science and society in general.

The development of measurement technology is internationally recognized as crucial for the long-term competitiveness of industrial developed countries. Measurement and sensor technology has been identified in national and international technology foresight projects as important in all sectors of society and scientific disciplines. Long-term metrological research is necessary, since traceability and measurement techniques often need to be developed long before they can be applied in business and science, and are based on advances in basic research.

Primary traceability to national and international standards is at the heart of metrology, between on the one hand, the fundamental natural constants of physics and the description of the cosmos, and on the other hand, the more immediate calibration needs in industry and trade.

A research programme, with the aim of improving long-term competitiveness through better measurement, is directed mainly towards two areas in metrology: the development of improved primary traceability, and the development of generic methods and instrumentation.

Industrial Metrology Program
Department of Control System and Instrumentation Engineering was first established in 1995 by the Faculty of Engineering, King Mongkut’s University of Technology Thonburi. The department offers a master degree in Industrial Metrology. The main objective of the program is to support the industrial parts of Thailand by engineers who graduate from this program. In the first year of the program, students are introduced to various basic topics in industrial metrology including electrical, electronic, mechanical and optical aspects of metrology. Qualify systems for manufacturing processes such as ISO standard and SPC are also provided as a basic core course. Moreover, advanced courses such as computerized instrumentation and digital signal processing are available to provide the student advances in the field of metrology. Lectures and laboratories provide the students invaluable experiences and knowledge of the design, implementation and practice of industrial system. In the second year, students are expected to conduct a research in the field of metrology as a graduate requirement for the degree.

Advanced Metrology MSc
The course in Advanced Metrology provides a high level route enabling engineering graduates, or engineers in industry, to acquire skills to allow them to operate effectively in a modern precision engineering manufacturing environment. This is achieved by the provision of technical modules, covering broad aspects of advanced metrology within the context of a modern manufacturing environment, and by the provision of optional modules covering the salient principal aspects of engineering management. The course should be of particular interest to engineering graduates involved with (or wishing to become involved with), precision manufacture, quality assurance, metrology and nanotechnology. Appropriate choice of optional modules encompassing relevant management techniques allow the flexibility to satisfy the needs of a variety of career paths.
