Emagister has added a course focus on the design of piping systems, imparted by AZ Eng Ltd.

Thanks to this course you will have the opportunity to learn and perform meticulously the design of piping systems. With it, you will build strong your knowledge in the definition of the system, piping project anatomy, documentation, and design lifecycle.

Design of piping systems is a multidisciplinary activity, although our course is focused on the mechanical and process engineering aspect. The course has been designed in order to have a focus in the Instrumentation and Control, Structural assessment and Technical Safety to provide students with a holistic understanding of the system design process.

Don't miss this opportunity to become an outstanding Engineer, contact, to know more about it!
