Welcome

The Centre for Precision Technologies (CPT) is a centre of excellence for collaborative metrology research, solving real-world manufacturing problems through cutting edge metrology research in precision engineering.

At the forefront of creating new measurement techniques, we apply novel techniques to real world problems. Highly innovative research and strong links with industry resulted in the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) designating the CPT as a National Centre of Excellence in Advanced Metrology in 2011. Headed by Professor Xiang Jiang, we are one of only 16 national centres for innovative manufacturing in the UK. The EPSRC Centre’s focus is developing the UK’s manufacturing metrology capabilities as well as supporting economic growth in relevant sectors.
