Metrology Institute

The Institute of Metrology, established in 1995, is an academic subdivision engaged in scientific, expert and consulting activities in the fields of legal and industrial metrology, and measurement engineering.

The Institute of Metrology participates in the improvement of the Lithuanian metrology system in Lithuanian and international research programs, coordinates research in metrology, provides scientific and technical support to industrial enterprises and organizations, trains specialists in the field of metrology, performs metrological supervision of measuring instruments for university subdivisions.

In 2007, the Institute (the first academic subdivision in Lithuania) has implemented a quality management system to meet the requirements of the International standard LS EN ISO 9001 in the following areas:  measurement technology research, metrology regulatory document preparation and expert activities; calibration and conformity assessment of measuring instruments; metrology specialist training.

The Institute of Metrology works on the self-declaration principle in accordance with the standard LST EN ISO / IEC 17025: 2005.

In 2014, the Institute has been accredited by Lithuanian National Accreditation Bureau as A type control body to perform the evaluation of quantities of prepackaged products ant the control procedure of measurement containers volume.

The Institute of Metrology offers five non-formal educational programs:

  • Training courses for metrology inspectors and metrologists
  • Training courses for tachograph inspectors
  • Seminars for metrologists
  • Training courses–seminars for metrologists
  • Reassessment of metrology inspectors and tachograph inspectors

Metrologijos instituto veikla vykdoma atsižvelgiant į vartotojų poreikius bei metrologijos ir matavimų inžinerijos mokslo technologinius iššūkius.

Universitetinės mokslinių tyrimų kryptysdiagnostinės ir matavimo technologijos; išmanios aplinkos ir informacinės technologijos; tvarus augimas ir darni sociokultūrinė raida.

Kitos tyrimų kryptys:

  • Matavimų vienovės ir metrologinės sistemos kūrimo mokslinės veiklos krypties moksliniai tyrimai ir eksperimentinė plėtra, dalyvavimas Lietuvos ir tarptautinėse mokslinių tyrimų programose;
  • Naujų, pažangių matavimo sistemų ir technologijų kūrimas, skirtų įvairių mokslo ir pramonės metrologinių uždavinių sprendimui;
  • Dalyvavimas tobulinant Lietuvos metrologinę sistemą, matavimo priemonių ir matų, norminių dokumentų ir kitų tokio pobūdžio objektų metrologinės ekspertizės vykdymas;
  • Bendrųjų ir specializuotų matavimo priemonių ir sistemų patikros, kalibravimo metodikų ir bandymų programų rengimas pagal 2015 m. gegužės 15 d. patvirtintą ūkio ministro įsakymą Nr. 4-329 “Matavimo priemonių patikros metodikų rengimo ir tvirtinimo tvarkos aprašas”;
  • Dalyvavimas kuriant Lietuvos etalonų techninę, mokslinę ir teisinę bazę;
  • Sąlygos bei vadovavimas magistrantų ir doktorantų moksliniams tiriamiesiems darbams;
  • Mokslinės – techninės paramos ir konsultacinių – ekspertinių paslaugų teikimas pramonės įmonėms ir organizacijoms;
  • Neformalaus švietimo organizavimas metrologijos specialistams, jų kvalifikacijos kėlimas;
  • Matavimo priemonių metrologinė priežiūra, matavimo įrangos kalibravimas.

Training courses

The Institute of Metrology offers five non-formal educational programs

Contact person – Justina Dobilienė, phone: +370 (37) 300 776, email: justina.dobiliene@ktu.lt

Training courses for metrology inspectors and metrologists (TMNT520062)

The program is intended for persons who want to acquire metrology inspector and metrologist qualification.

After completing the course program, certificates are issued for a period of 5 years.

Program duration: 120 academic hours.
Frequency of courses: a group of 10 people.

Training courses for tachograph inspectors (TMNT520059)

The program is intended for persons who have completed tachograph manufacturer’s training courses and who want to obtain a qualification as a tachograph inspector and metrologist.

After completing the course program, certificates are issued for a period of 5 years.

Program duration: 50 academic hours.
Frequency of courses: gathering a group of 10 people.

Seminars for metrologists (TMNT520060)

Under the special company orders, a program is being developed for business professionals who wish to improve their qualifications and gain new knowledge.

Training courses–seminars for metrologists (TMNT520061)

The program is intended for metrologists and tachograph inspectors who want to improve their qualifications.

Program duration: 20 academic hours.
Frequency of courses: once a year (3 group for metrologists and 1 group  for tachograph inspectors).

Reassessment of metrology inspectors and tachograph inspectors (TMNT520058)

The program is intended for re-evaluation of the qualification of a metrology inspector and a tachograph inspector. For those who have upgraded their qualification each year on qualification courses that meet OIML D-14 requirements within 5 years from the issuance of the certificate, their certificates are renewed (for 5 years). Participants who did not attend the qualification courses or have attended them not in full scale shall have an appropriate qualification exam.

Program duration: 10 academic hours.
Frequency of courses: after gathering a group of 10 people.
