Feedback from previous attendees

Really useful to physically compare diagrams with the real plant. I thoroughly enjoyed the course and feel like I've gained the good foundation across multiple areas of engineering that I was missing from my science background.

Joseph Kershaw, MChem graduate at Rolls Royce

I liked the holistic approach to the course, to get a good overall understanding of different aspects to plant specification and design. It was great to have different experts from their fields explain parts as well.

George Fudge, Design Engineer at WASE Ltd

Extensive training on project implementation, plant documentation, utilities, mechanical equipment (HVAC, compressed air, chilled water), control systems and electrical circuits (HV&LV). Highly recommended course for young professionals who want to learn the 'industry language'!

Farhad Beik, Process Engineer at Wellstone Ltd
