This professional development course is designed for engineers and technicians who need practical skills in the latest practices and technologies in gas turbine engineering.
The gas turbine engineering function in any organization encompasses many disciplines, including the different aspects of gas turbine plant operation and facility management.
The advent of new gas turbine designs and applications has transformed this function into one that is becoming highly specialized and increasingly sophisticated. Therefore this an increasing demand for highly-skilled, knowledgeable, and practically oriented gas turbine engineers.
This course has been designed to instill the required skills and knowledge that engineers and technicians require when working in this field. It will give you a comprehensive overview of gas turbine engineering, along with numerous practical application tips and shortcuts to engineering problem-solving.
We will cover critical factors that determine the success of any gas turbine installation, such as ease of installation, serviceability, and operational and design flexibility. You will also learn how to understand selection and design-related parameters so that you can identify and select a suitable system for a particular application.
The course is composed of 12 modules, covering the basic thermodynamic principles behind gas turbines, the basic operation of a gas turbine and the functions of its components, simple troubleshooting and maintenance skills, and the required materials and fuels for different types of turbine.
To obtain a certificate of completion for EIT’s Professional Certificate of Competency, students must achieve a 65% attendance rate at the live, online fortnightly webinars. Detailed summaries/notes can be submitted in lieu of attendance. In addition, students must obtain a mark of 60% in the set assignments which could take the form of written assignments and practical assignments. Students must also obtain a mark of 100% in quizzes. If a student does not achieve the required score, they will be given an opportunity to resubmit the assignment to obtain the required score.
You are expected to spend approximately 5-8 hours per week learning the course content. This includes attending fortnightly webinars that run for about 90 minutes to facilitate class discussion and allow you to ask questions. This professional development program is delivered online and has been designed to fit around full-time work. It will take three months to complete.
Registrations are open for our upcoming intakes. Please ensure you book your place at least one week before the start date of the program.
We are one of the only institutes in the world specializing in engineering.
