Coordinate Metrology, Certificate of Achievement
The program was made possible through the collaborative efforts of the teaching staff and donations of product and curriculum support from Verisurf Software and its industry partners, Faro Technologies and API. The program is significant in that it closes the loop for students in the concept of model-based manufacturing, including design, reverse engineering, manufacturing, quality inspection and reporting.
The Coordinate Metrology program is a crowning achievement for Cerritos College as it relationally and digitally connects practical elements of the department’s applied technology curriculum. In industry this is commonly referred to as “maintaining the digital thread.”
