Research at the Precision Engineering Consortium
The goals of the Precision Engineering Consortium are: 1) to improve the understanding and capability of precision metrology, actuation, manufacturing and assembly processes; and 2) to train a new generation of engineers and scientists with the background and experience to transfer this new knowledge to industry. Because the problems related to precision engineering originate from a variety of sources, significant progress can only be achieved by applying a multidisciplinary approach; one in which the faculty, students, staff and sponsors work together to identify important research issues and find the optimum solutions. Teamwork and group interactions are a hallmark of research at the PEC and this contributes to both the quality of the research as well as the training of the graduates.
Research at the PEC fall into three focus areas:
