Measurement technology plays an extremely important role in production, assembly and quality control. Increasingly, measurement tasks have to be solved in a process-integrated manner. Metrology is the basic prerequisite for the introduction of Industry 4.0!

The Institute for Process Measurement and Sensor Technology represents the module Measurement and Sensor Technology in the Bachelor's program. Already during the bachelor education in mechanical engineering you can specialize in the field of precision measurement technology.

In the master's degree program in mechanical engineering, the field of study measuring and sensor technology is offered.



The staff of our institute is spread over the entire campus. Starting with the Kirchhoff Building with the secretariat and the professors' rooms, there are office, work and laboratory rooms and a workshop in the Kirchhoff Building, Werner-Bischoff Building, Ernst-Abbe Centre, Newton Building, Meitner Building, Feynman Building and in the Schützenhaus.
