About this course

This is a special course for students who are working and studying at the same time. It is a self paced course about Static Equipment. The course is suitable for engineering or science graduates who wish to become familiar with the engineering principles involved in the design of static equipment.

This course is proving popular within process industry companies wishing to introduce graduates to all aspects of static equipment. The work load is lower to accommodate the work/learn situation of the student. The student is expected to work at the material one hour per day, 5 days a week. There is a Course Tutor available to facilitate online discussion and to assess the final project.
