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.

The course reflects the expertise and experience of University teaching and research staff in the field of metrology and precision engineering gained through a many years of research experience via UK Government (EPSRC), European Union (EU) and industrial research projects. The course therefore represents an effective mechanism for transferring this expertise and knowledge from the University to industry - and this is extremely useful in the case of engineers, already employed in industry, who ca undertake part-time study on the course.

In the context of this course, the engineering manufacturing industry relates to the use of precision manufacturing methodologies and associated metrology as well as industries using advanced processing techniques. This involves knowledge applicable to the design and performance characterisation of precision machine tools, additive manufacturing, roll-to-roll manufacture and measurement systems as well as knowledge of micro electro mechanical systems, and nanometrology in general.

Exploration of quantum phenomena has recently led to extraordinary applications of quantum entanglement. The degree of control exerted over these systems is reflected in the term ‘quantum technology’, describing both experimental and theoretical developments in this area.

This course is for you if you’re interested in the wonders of quantum physics and have a desire to exploit its full power. We cover:
-Ion-trap quantum processors
-Ion-photon interfaces for the projected quantum internet
-Quantum simulators
-Superconducting quantum circuits
-Devices for quantum-enhanced metrology

How will I study?

Assessment is split equally between the project and modules.

Your project culminates in a dissertation (with a contribution from a research talk). The modules are assessed by problem sets, with either open-notes tests or unseen examinations. You’ll attend research seminars and contribute to your group’s discussions of the latest journal papers.

You can choose to study this course full time or part time.

Your time is split between taught modules and a research project. The project can take the form of a placement in industry, but usually our faculty supervises them. Supervisors and topics are allocated, in consultation with you, at the start of the autumn term. You work on the project throughout the year. Often the projects form the basis of research papers that are later published in journals. Most projects are theoretical but there is an opportunity for you to become involved in the reduction and analysis of data acquired by faculty members.

In the autumn and spring terms, you take core modules and choose options. You start work on your project and give an assessed talk on this towards the end of the spring term. In the summer term, you focus on examinations and project work.

In the part-time structure, you take the core modules in the autumn and spring terms of your first year. After the examinations in the summer term, you begin work on your project. Project work continues during the second year when you also take options.

Distribution of modules between the two years is relatively flexible and agreed between you, your supervisor and the module conveners. Most of your project work naturally falls into the second year.
