Each of us is a CONSUMER of many types of products and services and at the same time - MANUFACTURER of certain types of products or services used by other people. Therefore, each of us is interested in the total high quality of products and services. This interdependence is a base of society and prosperity progress.
The experience of developed countries suggests that product quality can and should be managed. It not only satisfies the needs of consumers, but also greatly saves financial and material resources of society.
Standardization, assessment of conformity with certification, technical control and metrology are used for process management and control over the production of products (provision of services).
STANDARDS with state support are a documented form of public agreement on a rational "price-quality" ratio that satisfies the majority of consumers and producers in the country.
Comparison of available and required by standards products (services) properties is carried out on the basis of quality control and measurement using METROLOGY in standardized processes of QUALITY AUDIT, ASSESSMENT OF CONFORMITY, which are the basis of the CERTIFICATION.
All of these activities form the scope of TECHNICAL REGULATION to meet the needs of people.
The success here is conditioned by the organization of processes in which the lack passage to consumer becomes impossible.
As the response to such a need of society appeared INTERNATIONAL STANDARDS on the quality systems. Their scope is constantly expanding and covers an increasing number of aspects: production, environment, safety, social responsibility, risk management, energy management, etc. These documents are designed in such a way that they can be applied in any branch of economic activity, in organizations of any ownership form and size.
Ukraine is an active participant in the reputable International Organization for Quality and Technical Regulation and works to harmonize its normative base on international standards. Their introduction into practice is inextricably linked with quality measurement, on the basis of qualimetry and metrology also as modern methods of research and processing of statistical material. Professional fulfillment of all these works is impossible without mastering of modern information technologies, first of all - in the areas of metrology, standardization, certification and quality.
All of this forms the training content of universal specialists in the specialty 152 - "Metrology and Information and Measurement Technology"
Only a few Ukraine universities (and only NMetAU in our region) are training metrology specialists with an emphasis on the use of quality system standards: ISO (and DSTU ISO) series 9000, 14000, 17000, 22000, 26000, 27000, 31000, 50000, OHSAS 18000, EN 26000, EN 45000 and others, in particular so-called "Good Practices". This is determined by the urgent needs of organizations in specialists of quality assurance, standardization and certification, metrology and technical control.
Since 2004 the specialized department "Quality, standardization and certification" in NMetAU teach bachelors and masters on the specified profile. Students receive special knowledge in the field of development and use of quality systems components, use of measuring devices, development and maintenance of normative and technical documentation, products and processes quality control, etc. Particular attention is paid to computer training of students. This has the necessary material equipment.
Our graduates are able to work in any field of the economy activities (management and technical regulation, heavy and light industry, construction, agriculture, industrial and household chemistry, trade, food production, pharmacology, etc.) and, as practice of their employment shows, take places at enterprises and organizations with prestigious positions of experts in quality assurance and standardization and certification work, expert auditors, staff of metrology services and tech control over decent wages.
The graduating department "Quality, Standardization and Certification" has the experience of employing graduates both in state bodies of technical regulation and in enterprises.
