Metrology and Metrological Support
27.03.01 Standardization and Metrology

In the course of training in this specialization, students study a range of disciplines aimed at the formation of competencies that ensure the ability to perform the labor functions of a metrology engineer and working in the departments related to the improvement of the regulatory framework and quality control. Metrology, standardization and quality control make the basis without which no production activity is possible, ranging from discoveries of the fundamental laws and properties of nature to modern metrological provision of high technologies. In modern conditions, one of the most important instruments of the state regulatory instruments is the certification of production, products and services. The preparation of Bachelor’s degree students in this field is particularly relevant after the introduction of the Federal Law “On Technical Regulation” in the context of expanding foreign economic activities of national enterprises and Russia's accession to the WTO.

Reasons for choosing a course
  • Metrologists’ activities provide for the progress of natural and technical sciences
  • The activity of metrologists is of paramount importance in material resources accounting and planning, ensuring national and international trade and product quality, interchangeability of components and parts, etc.
  • An extensive list of positions for subsequent employment
  • Unlike other specialties, the future professional activities of graduates are not limited to a particular branch: the graduates can choose the area of her future work while working on their graduation qualifying work
