This course focuses on fundamentals of precision machinery and introduces modern precision machines and micro-nano machines.
In order for students to understand the concept of precision machinery, the instructor lectures on many precision elements such as bearings, guideways, feeding elements, actuators and sensors and fabrication methods.
