About the Program

Precision Engineering Design & Measurement covers the fundamental practices common to all engineering majors in making and reporting basic engineering measurements and their use in designing high-precision items.  Students will learn about the engineering design process, cultural components of German design, commonly used engineering measurement tools, statistical data analysis, and standard uncertainty analysis methods.  Three local tours at businesses and museums will punctuate how precision measurements are used in engineering design practice with cultural influences within German, European, and American design practices.

Upon course completion students should have a working understanding of precision measurements and the engineering design process.  Students will be familiar with how to approach engineering measurements, what uncertainty in measurements means in practice, and how to statistically examine engineering data in design.  Students will have a broader understanding of German & European design practices and the impact of cultural influences within engineering design projects.
