There are millions of kilometers of onshore and offshore pipelines spread across the world. However, many personnel involved in pipeline operations do not receive even basic pipeline engineering training, while some are exposed only to specialized areas.

This Competency in Onshore and Offshore Pipeline Systems  course from the Engineering Institute of Technology  will equip you with the core skills in pipeline engineering that will help enhance your career and benefit your organization. We will examine pipeline design, construction, and routing through to pipeline economics and advanced practices in asset management.

It doesn’t matter if you are a new mechanical or pipeline technician, technologist or engineer, or if you are 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.
