About the educational program:
With the development of mass production and international transportation, the issue of product safety becomes particularly important. Standardization is the process during which products are checked for compliance with national and international standards, while certification confirms that the product is truly safe and can be sent for sale. Both of these processes are closely interlinked and work to protect consumer rights, and also create responsibilities for manufacturers and suppliers.
The educational program “Standardization and certification ” teaches students the basics of standardization and certification processes, teaches them the features of standardization in different countries and regions, assess the quality of products, help improve the performance and competitiveness of goods, and adapt to constant changes in standardization and certification at the regional, national and international levels.
In the future, graduates of the “Standardization and certification” program will be able to find employment in any enterprises engaged in the production of any goods, since standardization and certification are necessary for any products released to the market. Moreover, specialists in standardization and certification will be able to work in organizations, centers and laboratories aimed at assessing the safety of goods for customers and the environment.
Studying in the program “Standardization and certification”, students will acquire theoretical knowledge about various product standards and types of certification, such as ISO, GOST and many others. Students will also be able to develop their research, organizational, and inspection skills through studying product standards and norms from different regions; understanding the process of standard setting, covering the production cycle from product manufacturing to sales; working with quality management; evaluating product quality and working with the certification process.
Students will learn how to monitor compliance with standards and requirements for both the production process and the product itself; use tools such as measurement and testing methods for products; work with documents on standards and standardization; answer questions about the quality and safety of production and goods; confirm that products and production meet various requirements; manage quality infrastructure; improve product and process compliance with standards and increase the competitiveness of goods.
Moreover, students will also acquire personal skills, such as teamwork, since working in standardization and certification often requires working with manufacturers, suppliers, consumers, and standardization and certification committees. In addition, students will be able to develop their skills in working with documentation, analytical mindset, and problem solving to improve compliance with production requirements and standards.
