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

Bachelor of "Standardization and Metrology"
The department of "Standardization and Metrology" is a structural division of USTU. Metrology is the science of measurements, methods and means of maintenance of their unity and ways to achieve the accuracy demanded. Standardization is the process of developing and implementing technical standards among competing entities in a market where this will bring benefits without hurting competition.

Engineers of the speciality “Standardization and Metrology” are engaged in metrological support of working out and manufacture of various kinds of industrial outputs, carry out developing, implementation and certification of new methods and measuring instruments. They also maintain and repair measuring instruments, the measuring and test equipment at the enterprises, plan measurements and processing of their results, test quality of production and technological process as a whole, watch application of metrological standards and rules at the enterprise. Graduates go for work to the state and departmental bodies of metrological control and supervision, in test and metrological divisions of the organisations and the enterprises of all industries.

Career options: The department trains highly qualified specialists working at the leading enterprises of Russia, engaged in the field of metrology and metrological equipment. Graduates from the given specialty find jobs as quality managers, engineers on standardization and certification at the enterprises of various forms of ownerships, in bodies on certification of production, processes and services.

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.
