Standards and Codes

Introduction to standards and codes commonly used by professional engineers in their design and development projects.


Welcome to your guide to standards and codes. This guide contains general information about national, international, and industry-based standards commonly encountered in academic and corporate research situations. The guide also introduces codes and similar regulatory constraints that frequently occur in conjunction with the application of standards.


The purpose of this guide is to provide an overview of the library resources and services available to Baylor faculty, staff, and students interested in this subject area.


This library guide is part of our “spotlight on the disciplines” literacy tier. It is designed to introduce students to these kinds of resources and allow them to begin building professional competencies while they are still enrolled. The guide should facilitate access to the most commonly sought standards and codes for all users.
