IIT Bombay's course on Piping Engineering was launched in 1992. It was a professional development programme developed as a joint initiative of industry and academia. This course instantly filled an existing gap between the requirement of industry's design and engineering sector and what conventional curriculum of established engineering disciplines of chemical engineering, mechanical engineering etc. offered. The course received huge response from professionals which literally thronged to the course year after year and edition after edition. It continues its popularity even as it is poised to reach its silver jubilee.
The course increased interaction between industry and CAD centre of IIT Bombay and offered solutions to many problems of the design and engineering sector. Piping Engineering Cell was formed to focus more on this major component of process plant engineering. This cell in the Chemical Engineering Department is now known as a one stop solution provider for all piping engineering related problems faced by industry. The Piping Engineering Cell presently offers two online courses, one on Piping Engineering and the other on Process Equipment Design. The course on Piping Engineering is also available in its contact format (class room teaching) twice every year.
THE COURSE COVERAGE
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. 65,000/- plus applicable GST (self-financed candidates not working abroad /candidates sponsored by Indian companies)
US $ 3500/- (Foreign Nationals/Non-Resident Indians/Persons working abroad)
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.300/- per day). IIT Guest House is not available.
The admissions are strictly on first-come-first- served basis and would close latest by November 23, 2017.
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.
