SYMPOSIUM Post graduate education in precision engineering, today and tomorrow

19 November 2015

Especially for Precision Engineers, their managers and HR managers

Since 5 years the DSPE is stimulating high end post academic technical courses for precision engineers.

The certification program gives the precision engineer his or her appreciation like MBA is for business administration. The European precision engineering society euspen has become interested in the phenomena.


The DSPE/EUSPEN symposium, organized as a parallel session in the Precision Fair in close cooperation with the Mikrocentrum is the formal kick off in the Netherlands of the DSPE/EUSPEN cooperation, aimed at certification of existing and future certified training courses on European level, leading to the European CPE title.

This symposium is for free.
