Published

Author(s)

Abstract

The paper presents a brief history and background of metrology outreach efforts to colleges and universities. It also includes a summary of a 2015 international educational survey used in part to assess colleges and universities that have measurement science courses or degree programs and also those that have indicated that they have integrated metrology concepts into engineering programs. Prior recommendations for outreach and integration of metrology into the scientific curricula are reinforced; evidence from the education survey supports the need and value of ongoing, sustained involvement by metrology champions in education outreach efforts to the college and university community.
