Laboratory for Industrial Metrology and Automation (LIMA)

Industrial Metrology and Automation ( IMA ) is a critical applied technology whose impact is felt every day in most countries of the world. A list of all international Metrology Laboratories has been collected by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST) and can be viewed at: http://www.nist.gov/oiaa/national.htm . There is a need for universities to assist industry and to perform research in this area in order to continue to improve the techniques and to incorporate new technologies. In the specific case of UTEP, there is a need to partner with local industry in the El Paso-Juarez area. A research program in IMA can also contribute to an improved competitiveness of American industry and the development of nanotechnology, MEMS, and Mechatronics.

The goals of LIMA include:

  • To serve as a home for assistance and consulting to industry in the IMA area
  • To serve as a home for multi-investigator research projects
  • To develop new courses and to offer seminars in the area of IMA
  • A laboratory for faculty and students working together in the IMA and related areas
  • To provide state of the art manufacturing, engineering, and quality services to regional corporations
  • To conduct research intended to bring about innovation and practical solutions by focusing on industrially relevant research needs

   
Mission Statement Minimize    

The Laboratory for Industrial Metrology and Automation will:

  • Perform world-class basic and applied research in problems associated with industrial metrology and automation.
  • Help establish the El Paso-Juarez area as a hot-spot for high technology industry by means of technology transfer projects with local industries as well as serving as an incubator for new high-tech enterprises.
  • Prepare highly-qualified B.S., M.S. and Ph.D. students for careers in industry and academia, with an emphasis on training underrepresented minority students.
