During the SYMPOSIUM ‘Post graduate education in precision engineering, today and tomorrow’ at the Precision Fair November 19, 2016. David Billington,Executive Director euspen (left) and Jan Willem Martens, Chairman Certification Program DSPE (right),undersigned the cooperation agreement to work closely together to implement the DSPE Certification Program in Europe.

About a year ago euspen (European Society for Precision Engineering) approached DSPE to propose collaboration in order to extend the certification programme from the Dutch level to the European level. On 19 november, a DSPE/euspen symposium, organised as a parallel session at the Precision Fair in close cooperation with fair organiser Mikrocentrum, will be the formal kick off in the Netherlands of this collaboration.

One of the objectives of euspen is to improve the level of knowledge and cooperation in the field of precision engineering within Europe. The program aims to promote post-academic technical education. Based on the demands in the market, euspen has selected and qualified the best post-academic courses for precision engineers. The ECP2 program reflects the demand for multidisciplinary system thinking, excellent cooperative skills and in-depth knowledge of relevant disciplines. This combined investment in education aims to create a common way of working and to facilitate networking among precision engineers.
