Certificate Course in Piping Design Engineering

COURSE OBJECTIVES:

The design engineering and construction of process plants involves a multidisciplinary team effort. Plant layout and design of piping systems constitutes a major part of the design and engineering effort. The goal is to design safe and dependable processing facilities in a cost effective manner. The fact is that there are very few formal training programs that focus on design and engineering of process plants and piping systems. Therefore, most of the required skills are acquired while on the job, reducing productivity and efficiency.

This course aims to transfer useful and essential knowledge related to design and layout of piping system which can help the participant broaden the existing knowledge he holds. The program gives a comprehensive knowledge of piping fundamentals which includes the various piping components, their international standards, materials, drawings involved from start to end of a piping project, drawings terminology and the concept involved in their creation. The program focus on the real time work related concepts, issues, which is enhanced by the inputs of the instructor’s practical experience.

WHO SHOULD ATTEND:

  • Professionals related to piping engineering field who work for Design, Analysis and Operation of Oil and Gas Industries.
  • Practicing Piping Design/layout Engineers, Piping Draftsmen, Piping Construction Engineers, Piping Fabrication Engineers, Piping Supervisors, Piping Stress Engineers, Piping QA/QC engineers.
  • Conversion Engineers switching disciplines or Industries.
  • Fresh Engineering/Diploma Graduates who aspire to make a career in piping.

WHAT YOU WILL LEARN:

Upon completion of this course the participant will be able to:

  • Perform various tasks in piping works, which can be related to Layout & Design, Drafting, Stress analysis & Construction, in Design Office, EPC Companies, & Plant Owner Companies.
  • Create & Understand Piping Layouts and Isometrics.
  • Create MTO (Material Take off
