Process Engineering Calculations

Course Fee : 5,000 GBP

Course Duration : 5 Days


An abundance of industry sectors have been experiencing increasingly competitive market conditions, shortage of resources and substantial increases in the unit costs of energy, while responding to increased restrictions on pollution control standards.

Process Engineering is a discipline that assists industries in increasing their competitiveness and readiness to face these challenges of the modern world.

This program has been developed to equip delegates with an understanding of the fundamental issues of process systems within the process industries.

This course will provide up to date technical knowledge and skills required for achieving the best management, designing, optimising, controlling and maintaining of efficient process systems.


  • Demonstrate competence in the current theory and practice of process systems engineering.
  • Effectively acquire and critically review information from various sources
  • Use the techniques appropriate for the management of a modern process plant.
  • Apply effectively the principles learned to the design, schedule of operation, instrumentation and control of process plants.
  • Assess the risks and environmental impacts of a process plants and develop the necessary measures to minimise them.
