What Is a Metrology Engineer?
A metrology engineer, or metrologist, specializes in science or engineering-related measurements. Your duty may include calibrating instruments, designing new tools or systems of measurement, interpreting data, or researching the science of measuring. Many subfields work with metrologists, including mechanical engineering. There are two levels of metrology certification available through the Coordinate Metrology Society (CMS).
How to Become a Metrology Engineer
The primary qualifications for becoming a metrology engineer are a bachelor’s degree and several years of experience with mechanical measurement. Some employers expect a master’s degree or a doctorate and may reduce work experience requirements for candidates with such education. Any additional experience with precision manufacturing, subfields, or similar instruments and technology can help you stand out from other engineers. This is often a math-heavy role, so the more advanced math courses you take, the better. Fulfilling the duties and responsibilities of a metrology engineer requires analytical skills, communication skills, and programming skills or experience with specific types of products.
