Course on Piping Engineering - 66th Edition
in its sixty eighth edition, this course needs no introduction to the industry
working professionals in the process industry.
Over 9000 engineers and 500 organizations in
Few design organizations as well as eminent piping engineers joined hands with IIT Bombay and methodically designed a formal Certificate Course on Piping Engineering for chemical and mechanical engineering graduates. Once it was offered in 1991, the course has had a fairy tale like journey and is the most sought after course in the engineering circles. The course has undergone continuous revisions, helped to a large extent by the feedback given by the participants and the industry. It is now an optimal mixture of theory and practice. The instruction hours are shared by IIT faculty and speakers from industry, the latter playing a significant role. The activity was institutionalized through the formation of a Piping Engineering Cell in CAD Centre which now conducts this course. The acceptance of the course by the industry has virtually forced the hands of various software houses and the Piping Engineering Cell has now a collection of most state-of-the-art piping engineering software. These are extensively used during the course. The open course is conducted twice every year, the winter edition beginning in the first or second week of December and the Summer edition in the first or second week of May. These are calendar events. Enrollment for the Winter 2015 course is now open. Please note that the medium of instruction in the course is English.
In view of increasing demand from foreign participants for seats in this course 20 seats have been specially reserved for them this time. Although the last date for all categories is the same, foreign participants are advised to apply as early as possible so as to be able to complete the visa formalities.
Fresh or working, chemical or mechanical engineering graduates are normally preferred. Few seats are also given to the instrumentation, production and refinery engineering graduates on proven aptitude basis. Diploma holders are normally not admitted. In exceptional cases, diploma holders with considerable relevant experience (at least 7 Years) are admitted. It is an exposure level course and the participant profile is young. Experienced working engineers from operating companies and design organizations also attend in significant numbers and have found the course a horizon - widening experience.
The vastness of the subject and limited duration of the course do not allow in-depth coverage of each and every topic. The topics which are covered in adequate details are as follows:
- Scope of Piping Engineering
- Codes and Standards
- Piping Elements & Specialties
- Mechanical Design Fundamentals
- Pipe Hydraulics & Sizing
- Piping Drawing Basics
- Development of Plot Plan
- Equipment Layout
- Process Piping Layout
- Utility Piping Layout
- Flexibility Analysis
- Selection of Supports & Expansion Joints
Exposure Level Lectures are delivered on some of the following topics.
- Steam Engineering
- Transient Fluid Flow Analysis
- Cryogenic Storage
- Dynamic Analysis
- Process Insulation
- Instrumentation and Control
Practicals are an important part of the course. The participants are encouraged to develop rational thinking skills through a case study approach.
Exposure to important CAD tools available in Piping Engineering arena is offered.
Multimedia teaching aids are incorporated. This allows display of three dimensional plant models, carrying out computer aided design and engineering in the class room itself, showing video clippings to support a point etc. At the same time, all care is taken to emphasize on teaching rather than on presentation.
Certificate of Participation will be issued to the candidates who have registered and participated in the course.
Rs. 62,000/- (self-financed candidates not working abroad /candidates sponsored by Indian companies)
US $ 3500/- (Foreign Nationals/Non-Resident Indians/Persons working abroad)
Course fees are inclusive of Service Tax.
The course fees are inclusive of one set of course material and working lunch. All other expenses are chargeable extra.
Companies please note that the courses conducted in IIT are exempt from Income Tax and hence no TDS should be deducted.
Subject to availability only bachelor accommodation is offered in the IIT Students Hostels (Rs.250/- per day). IIT Guest House is not available.
The admissions are strictly on first-come-first- served basis and would close
Please note that this is the last closing date and admissions are normally closed as soon as the seats are full. As per past experience, seats would be full well before the last date.
To register, the accompanying registration form or its Xeroxes may be used. Completed registration form along with Demand Draft for requisite amount drawn in favor of Registrar, IIT
The seat is confirmed only after receipt of payment. Fees once paid are not refundable under any circumstances. In special cases, transfer of registration to the next course or replacement of the registered candidate by another eligible candidate may be permitted.
