Ultra Precision

Many emerging sectors and next generation products will demand large scale ultra precision (nanometre level tolerance) complex components. Such products include: next generation displays, plastic electronic devices, low cost photovoltaic cells, energy management and energy harvesting devices and logistics, defence and security technologies.

Their product performance is set to advance and the innovative manufacturing based on ultra precision technologies for these products defines the scope for the EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Ultra Precision.

Cranfield University is home to Ultra-Precision Engineering. The Department of Surface and Precision Institute led by Prof Jose and other academics like Dr Saurav Goel are jointly steering the efforts to train the manpower in the area of Ultra-Precision Engineering by actively steering the Centre of Doctoral Training in Ultra Precision Engineering together with the University of Cambridge. Further information of this EPSRC funded Centre is available on request.

You can apply to study for this programme via this link. The student first registers for a 1 year long MRes and after its successful completion automatically moves to a 3 years PhD Degree program.

Short Courses

Cranfield University is home to Ultra-Precision Engineering and trains the next generations of engineers in this area. Currently these are the two short courses being offered by Cranfield University in this area and you may directly contact Dr Saurav Goel (s.goel@cranfield.ac.uk) to gain further info of these:

  1. Ultra-Precision Manufacturing and Metrology
  2. Simulations for Precision Manufacturing
