Measuring the importance of World Metrology Day (May 20)

by Joseph Fuehne, director, Purdue College of Technology at Columbus

May 20 is observed annually around the world as World Metrology Day and commemorates the anniversary of the signing of the Metre Convention in 1875. This treaty provides the basis for a coherent measurement system worldwide. Because the Purdue College of Technology at Columbus has a well-equipped metrology lab that serves as a resource for students and local industry in our region and state, we will be celebrating World Metrology Day.

Columbus metrology lab to benefit students, manufacturers

Purdue's College of Technology at Columbus is giving students an opportunity to fill a major void in the manufacturing industry by offering classes specializing in measurement.

The classes are possible because of a new metrology lab at the Community Education Coalition (CEC) Advanced Manufacturing Center of Excellence (AMCE) in Columbus. It has the most extensive resources of any metrology lab in the Midwest.
