In spite of satisfactory availability of didactical material, there exist some problems in teaching metrology that are conditioned by rather outdated common view on the role and position of this subject in the overall discipline of Mechanical Engineering, as well as in other engineering branches. In fact, in the last ten years, many changes have occurred in metrology both as a science itself and as a practical activity on measurement uniformity support. Terminology, concerning essential elements of measurement process and measurement situation, has been revised to a large extent. In the paper, certain recommendations are given on a shift of the subject teaching paradigm and its contents.
