Codes and Standards: A Guide for MSOE students, faculty, and staff

Information for students, faculty, and staff of MSOE about the acquisition and use of codes and standards.

Codes and standards establish minimum acceptable levels of safety, quality, and reliability. Understanding the codes and standards at both the industry and government level will allow you to better understand the expectations of your chosen field. Beyond engineering, codes and standards can also help you to understand business, economics, labor, and politics. Online databases and official websites are ideal for tracking down the most up-to-date codes and standards, though some are available in print.
