ANSI and its Committee on Education (CoE) work with members of the U.S. academic community to promote the incorporation of standards-related information into the curricula of U.S. colleges and universities. The following colleges and universities offer courses that teach standardization and/or utilize standards as course material.
ENGN 1931L Biomedical Engineering Design and Innovation II
This course is part two of the culmination “Capstone” of the biomedical engineering educational experience. The primary objective of this course is to recall and enhance design principles introduced through the engineering core curriculum and to apply this systematic set of engineering design skills to biomedical engineering projects. Student teams formed in the previous semester will continue develop a design project based on an unmet clinical need with a clinical advisor, gaining hands-on process experience and generating innovative solutions.
SYS 301 Introduction to Systems Engineering
Provides an overview of systems engineering in the development of large systems, including genesis and need, characteristics of systems and system engineers, the system life cycle (from birth to death), design for operational feasibility, project management, structure, and system control, statistical/probabilistic models in dealing with risk inherent in large, complex systems. Emphasis on the importance of system requirements regarding total system performance, interfaces, cost, schedule, optimization, and trades. We also cover various applicable standards used by Systems Engineers.

AASI 610 Aviation and Aerospace Organization Development, Leadership & Workforce Development
Aviation and aerospace industries reach across cultural and international boundaries. This course encompasses contemporary organization development (OD) and interventions that help organizations balance economic, social, and environmental objectives and behavioral issues in the industry. The course examines the principles of organization development, change, leadership, cross-cultural communications, diversity, and social equity.
AASI 605 Aviation and Aerospace Sustainable Organizations
Investigate sustainable operations of aviation and aerospace organizations. Analyze how the distinctive operations of aviation and aerospace organizations could move along with sustainability practices. Sustainable strategies must be a core element within aviation and aerospace organizations; the development of a sustainable strategy should consider the distinctive characteristics of the industry and the interactions among its stakeholders.
AASI 620 Best Practices for Aviation and Aerospace Sustainability
Systems in aviation and aerospace are complex and diverse across many global platforms. This course investigates the design, development, operation, maintenance, and decommissioning of flight vehicles and the systems needed to keep them sustainable by applying forward-thinking engineering, environmental, and best practices to determine sustainable solutions. This course will also present the accelerating development practices that can benefit international aviation's contribution across the main pillars of sustainability.
AASI 635 Operational Excellence for Aerospace/Aviation Sustainability
This course focuses on operations for aviation and aerospace companies under the context of sustainability. Companies can boost effectiveness and customer service while increasing safety and reducing environmental impact simultaneously, both important for the aviation industry and all types of industries and companies. This course focuses on different ISO standards, sustainability guiding principles, risk management standards, methodologies, results-oriented quality tools, and other Models to achieve operational excellence in the sector.
MGMT 447 Business Ethics and Social Responsibility
The course focuses on two important issues for businesses and other organizations – ethical behavior and social responsibility - and especially upon those situations that require moral reflection, judgment, and decision. The course examines contemporary concepts of business ethics and social responsibility and explores current problems that require moral and ethical reasoning.

ESHS 740 EHS Management System Design
This course integrates the use of ISO 14001 and 45001 management system standards and examines the design and development of environmental, health and safety management systems in order to implement an organization's policies. It offers strategies for measurement of results in order to assess performance and ensure continual improvement
ESHS 755 Corporate Social Responsibility
This course introduces social responsibility concepts and approaches presented in key documents like the ISO 26000 Social Responsibility Standard and the AA1000 standard on stakeholder engagement, and explores strategies for assisting an organization to identify and implement socially responsible initiatives appropriate to the nature and scope of its activities, products, and services.
ESHS 780 EHS Internal Auditing
This course provides an overview of the fundamentals of EHS internal auditing, including EHS internal audit program design and management principles, management system performance evaluation and corrective action techniques, and system improvements.
EEET-451: 3D Audio: Theory and Practice
3D audio refers to a method to generate and deliver an immersive audio field that is integrated with 3D video. The course covers theoretical and practical aspects of 3D audio: capturing auditory information of a venue using multi-microphone techniques (discrete multichannel methods, microphone arrays, and binaural capture), rendering the captured information using spatial signal processing (Inverse filtering, VBAP and Crosstalk Cancellation), transmitting and delivering as multichannel audio format, and recreating the original auditory information (multichannel loudspeaker reproduction and applying inverse filter for room compensation). In addition, the course will teach the fundamentals of the architectural acoustics (acoustics of a space) and the psycho-acoustics (recognized acoustics by listeners). The course includes practical exercises through which students can evaluate the spatial audio techniques discussed in the course and reproduce immersive multichannel sound and music.
Student teams work on design projects that demonstrate an ability to design (or redesign) a mechanical system to meet desired needs within realistic constraints such as economic, environmental, social, political, ethical, health and safety, manufacturability, and sustainability. The projects must demonstrate an understanding of the project’s potential impact in a global, economic, environmental, and societal context. The projects must involve significant use of engineering tools and standards, the results of which are used to inform design decisions. Models are used to predict the behavior and optimize the design.
The goal of any manufacturing enterprise should be to obtain safe, dependable, satisfactory, and economical production within the operating constraints of the process. Students will gain foundational knowledge of industrial control systems focused on manufacturing automation. The course will concentrate on the selection and application of commercial sensors, actuators, and controllers to meet the needs of an individual process, or an enterprise-wide operation. Students will gain an understanding of automation system design to support data collection, and storage to support the objectives of an Industry 4.0 connected enterprise.
Graduate level students will individually complete an additional project whereby they create a human machine interface (HMI) for the MIE Smart Manufacturing Pilot process. Students will design their HMI to be compliant with ANSI/ISA-101.01-2015, Human Machine Interfaces for Process Automation Systems.
