Course Description

As the name suggest itself, this course is about the fundamentals of Mechanical Equipment. And this Mechanical Equipment is the main part of any systems in various places like a Refinery, Chemical plant, Oil and Gas Plant, Refrigeration system, HVAC system, Power Plant, Food grade Industries, Pharmaceutical Industries etc.

Mechanical Equipment course is mainly focused on the static equipment like storage tanks, pressure vessel, heat exchangers etc. so this will benefit to the people who want to bulid their career in process plant project, concerned with issues of design, fabrication, construction and quality control of mechanical equipment (pressure vessels, heat exchangers, etc.)
