27.04.01 Standardization and metrology

This area of instruction is designed to train specialists in quality management of modern materials, such as polymeric and composite, precious metals, and pharmaceutical substances. Students learn the legislative, regulatory and chemical aspects of materials quality control to become “engineer lawyers” of interest to many businesses.
Level of education:
Master’s degree
Form of training:
Full-time (daytime)
Place of training:
Moscow
Entrance examination:
— Higher mathematics
Profiles and specializations:
Metrological support for measurement techniques
The master’s program gives instruction to students wishing to work in the field of standardization and metrological support for a wide range of high-technology products. Students learn the scientific, technological, regulatory and management foundations of standardization and metrology, among them ways to establish the target set of product and component parameters, to define measurement error limits, to select measurement techniques and tools, to plan research and development programs in order to design new measuring instruments and testing methods, and to manage and perform metrological assessment.

Students receive theoretical instruction and practical training in the area of metrological support for science-based technologies. This includes examination of techniques to obtain reliable estimates of measured physical values, to select flawless measurement methods and tools, to examine and test products, and to monitor manufacturing processes and facilities. They are trained to provide regulatory, technical and organizational metrological support for product manufacture, quality control and operation. Students of the program have access to modern laboratories at leading organizations in the field of metrological support for innovative technologies, where they can undergo hands-on training and examine employment prospects.
