ISO recognition of our university
Confident strides and giant projects were made by the university in the midst of circumstances characterized by harsh challenges, so that the results would come according to an academic and intellectual development along with more events which shaped the victories of Iraq recently. Today the university announces to all Iraqis and all the honest worldwide ISO recognition of the engineering consulting offices at Baghdad university as one of the global offices of standardization and quality control after many great sufferings in obtaining licenses for engineering projects in offices outside Iraq.
In a gorgeous bright morning for our university and our nation, the Iraqi planning ministry celebrated a new achievement for Iraq and for the ministry of higher education, i.e, the central organization for standardization and quality control at the ministry of planning granted an international certification of ISO (International Organization for Standardization) for the labs of the advisory office at the college of engineering, in the presence of the university president, prof. Dr. All Abdul Husssein, deputy minister of planning, prof. Dr. Riyad Khalil, administrative assistant of the rector, dean of the college of engineering and a number of university professors and officials from the organization for standardization and quality control. It is worth mentioned that ISO is a standard-setting organization that includes representatives from several national organizations. It was founded on 23 February 1947 and addressed global trade and industrial standards and its headquarters in Geneva-Switzerland. Although ISO defines itself as a non-governmental organization, but its ability to set standards that usually turn into laws (either through treaties or national standards) makes it more powerful than most NGOs and it comprise a pact that has strong links with governments. University channel office team and website accompanied the celebration and documented in a series of video scenes and photos.
