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 is home to hosting the “Centre of Doctoral Training” (CDT) in Ultra-Precision Engineering together with the University of Cambridge. After restructuring and staff changes at Cranfield, academics like Dr Saurav Goel are 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.
The detailed information about the CDT in Ultra-Precision can be seen from this link.
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 (goeLs@Lsbu.ac.uk) to gain further info of these:
The EPSRC Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Ultra Precision undertakes early stage production research to establish new processing technologies demanded for effective production of emerging products, with global outreach.
