In the course of training in this specialization, students master the methodology of research and development work, undergo pedagogical and industrial practical training. Professional activities of the graduate students can be associated with the performance of work in departments of  enterprises from various industries, areas and forms of ownership (quality department, standardization department, certification department, metrological service, technical control department, etc.), in organizations providing consulting services in the development and implementation of various management systems, as well as certification bodies and metrology and testing laboratories. 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.
