Today, there are more than 10,000 American National Standards

Standards in the classroom

There are approximately 2,500 universities and colleges in the United States academic sector. 

According to a survey conducted by The Center for Global Standards Analysis on Standards Education Perspectives in U.S. Schools of Engineering (2004), there are a very small number of university courses in the United States that are dedicated to the study of standards and standardization. Here is a list of the courses that are offered:

About ANSI

The American National Standards Institute (ANSI) is a private, non-profit organization that administers and coordinates the U.S. voluntary standardization and conformity assessment system.

The Institute oversees the development of thousands of standards that directly impact businesses in nearly every sector. Topics covered range from the largest construction equipment to the smallest nanoparticles, and from the most detailed applications to the broadest definition of a systems implementation. ANSI is also actively engaged in accrediting programs that assess conformance to standards.

The ANSI Federation is comprised of government agencies, organizations, corporations, academic and international bodies, and individuals. In total, the Institute represents the interests of more than 125,000 companies and 3.5 million professionals.

ANSI is the official U.S. representative to the International Organization for Standardization (ISO) and, via the U.S. National Committee, the International Electrotechnical Commission (IEC).
