Short Courses in Engineering & Technology

The discipline is based on the application of existing technology within a field of engineering through the use of basic engineering principles and technical skills. As such, undergraduate and graduate programmes in the field focus primarily on the applied aspects of science and engineering to equip graduates with practical technical skills in product improvement, manufacturing, construction or engineering operational functions.Studying engineering equips students with practical skills to acquire and apply scientific, mathematical, economic, social and practical knowledge to design and build structures, machines, devices, systems, materials and processes that safely serve as a solution to the needs of society. Combined with knowledge and processes related to technology, programmes in engineering and technology field provide students tools and skills to manipulate materials so to shape and change the physical world to meet needs. Through hands-on training, students are encouraged to come up with creative applications of scientific principles.

Competency in Control Valve Sizing, Selection and Maintenance Certificate Competency in Control Valve Sizing, Selection and Maintenance
  • Jun 2016
  • Not specified
  • Not specified

Control valves are the workhorse of our facilities, continually functioning to ensure our systems work as intended. A properly specified, engineered, designed, installed, and maintained control valve can be one of the most profitable investments a facility can have, while a control valve that "does not work well" can be an increased risk of injury (more exposure of maintenance personnel working on the valve), and disruption to your system.
