Technical Universities offers a curriculum generalist, leading to the formation of a graduate with basic training. This is the reason that after graduation, the new engineer must attend different masters or postgraduate programs.

This is because with the beginning of activity and involvement in specific activities of the company, the new graduate needs practical and theoretical knowledge of its work.

The paper aims to highlight that for the same job, there may be criteria and different requirements depending on the economic activity.

This is due to specific standards imposed by the industry. Thus the work will make a comparison of the data requirements of industry standards such as those from OPITO - for the offshore industry, STCW, OCIMF, CDI and Intertanko - for the shipping industry, GWO - for the energy industry, the operation of offshore and shore wind turbines, and CompEx - for oil industry. Also will emphasize the importance of these standards, the advantages and disadvantages of their use. More, we'll provide the offer of courses, and their importance.
