Overview

A long with this is a growing need for expanded training, to supply qualified personnel, and hence opportunity for pipeline technicians, technologists and engineers in onshore and offshore installations. Also, many personnel involved in pipeline operations do not receive even basic pipeline engineering training, while some are exposed only to specialized areas. This is where the requirement for a program such as this fits in, with its stated objective of equipping the participant with the core skills in pipeline engineering that will help enhance his/her career, and benefit the organization.

The programme

This Competency in Onshore and Offshore Pipeline Systems course at Engineering Institute of Technology  examines pipeline design, construction and routing through to pipeline economics and advanced practices in asset management. No matter whether you are a new mechanical or pipeline technician/technologist/engineer or a practicing operations and facilities engineer, you will find this course extremely beneficial. You will gain an in-depth understanding of the applicable standards and specifications related to pipeline design, operation and maintenance, as also grasp the engineering principles involving liquid and gas flow and their importance in relation to pipeline design. The use of key performance indicators will be derived to measure the performance of your valuable asset, the pipeline.

With its relevance to both onshore and offshore pipelines, the program equips you with a multidisciplinary understanding of pipelines and enables you to understand the full cycle of pipeline engineering.
