Instrumentation Engineering and Metrology

BSc: 3 years ( 180 ECTS units ) Metrology is the science of measurement. Transversal to all areas of engineering it is vital for quality assurance of products and services. This horizontal specialization of Engineering is essential to the success the industrial, health and energy sectors. With the BSc in Instrumentation Engineering and Metrology, ISEP trains engineers capable to perform technical measurements, the calibration and maintenance of equipment, manage quality processes and support the development of new products in industrial or laboratory environments. The programme has a strong experimental physics component, complemented with knowledge of electronics and optical instrumentation, image and signal processing and quality control. Throughout the course, practical and laboratory classes allows students to test and enhance their ability to analyse and solve technological needs in order to support innovation. Student have the opportunity to develop their final project in companies or research groups. Recently, ISEP students presented studies on equipment management, quality control, facilities monitoring and the computerization of testing system, among other examples. Postgraduate Studies Graduate students can continue their specialization with the: MSc in Instrumentation Engineering and Metrology .
