About this course

The Rotating Machinery Master is a program certified by University of San Jorge (Spain) that lasts for one full-time academic year from September to July. It is comprised of 19 modules (38 weeks) followed by a 5-month final (research or design) project. The program includes both the foundations and the most advanced topics about pumps, compressors, motors, gas/steam turbines, instrumentation and control, gear design, vibration, bearing design, rotor dynamics, seals, compressed air, fatigue, financials, reliability and maintenance. If you are interested in seeing the whole picture of the rotating machinery discipline, this is the right program to study. It can also be useful if you are already a rotating engineer but want to prove your knowledge and skill with a degree. All the instructors are professionals with a vast of experience on the field.

What will I learn?

The Rotating Machinery Master has been designed to be practical, based on real turbomachinery world necessities. All the course content is focused on conveying hands-on knowledge to the student in a way he can take benefit from immediate application. The program outline has been built with experts on each field in order to satisfy educational skills from major companies in the market.

The program will cover major areas in rotating equipment field, from simple principles of turbomachinery up to maintenance concepts to be applied. It has been developed in order of increasing complexity: it will start with basic modules and more advanced concepts are introduced once the student is familiar with complex turbomachinery.

Who should participate?

This program will be very useful for turbomachinery engineers, rotating equipment engineers, reliability engineers and mechanical engineers interested in getting deep knowledge in Rotating Equipment.

Program structure

The lecture program consists of 19 courses, all of them compulsory. Each course lasts for two weeks.

  • Principles of Turbomachinery
  • Pumps and applications
  • Centrifugal Compressors and Applications
  • Reciprocating Compressors and applications
  • Electric Motors and Variable Frequency Drives
  • Gas Turbine and Applications
  • Ancillary equipment and Rotating Machinery Packages
  • Instrumentation and Control of Turbomachinery
  • Gear Design
  • Vibration
  • Bearing design
  • Rotor Dynamics
