The Certificate in Chemical Engineering for Non-Chemical Engineers consists of four courses providing knowledge of working chemical engineers for non-chemical engineers. It includes not only the topics that are taught in universities to chemical engineers but also knowledge of a working chemical engineer over the first several years of his/her career.
What Will You Learn?
- The basics of chemical engineering but also more advanced concepts in a condensed time frame and from a practical point of view
- The three elements of process plants including equipment, utilities, and instrumentation and control
- Different process discipline deliverables including BFD, PFD, P&ID, H&MB Table, process design criteria and process design basis, process description, process control narrative, and cause and effect table and gaining ability to read and interpret them
- The impact of process plants on the three elements of the environment: air, water, and soil
Who Should Take This Certificate?
- Chemical plant operators (field operators and panel operators)
- Maintenance personnel and supervisors
- Mechanical and Electrical Engineers
- Reliability Engineers and Asset Managers
How Will You Benefit?
The Certificate in Chemical Engineering for Non-Chemical Engineers can help you:
- understand and interpret the concepts, designs, and practices in chemical industries.
- determine the role, needs, and goals of chemical engineering in today's world.
- understand the three elements of process plants including equipment, utilities, and instrumentation and control.
- grasp the concepts and applications of different process elements including pipes, valves, automatic valves (switching valves and control valves), containers (vessels and tanks), fluid movers (pumps, compressors, blowers, fans), heat exchangers, and furnaces.
- realize the impact of process plants on the three elements of the environment: air, water, and soil.
- learn about the material of construction in process plants and different mechanisms of material loss including corrosion and erosion.
Fees & Schedule
The fee for each course is $1195 or register and pay $4400 for the entire certificate in advance and save $380.
This certificate consists of four courses and is asynchronous only. Students start on a date of their choosing and progress through each course at their own pace. There are no live sessions with the instructor; however, students will have access to pre-recorded ones. The instructor will also be available for consultation via email.
- Course I: Chemical Engineering and Process Plants
- Course II: Process Engineers’ Assets: Concepts, Skills, Deliverables, Codes & Standards
- Course III: Unit Operations, Process Units, and Plant Design
- Course IV: Health, Safety, and Profitability of Process Plants
Note: Your registration is not guaranteed until your seat is confirmed and you have been contacted by our Registration Office. As well, fees are based on the current academic year and are subject to change. No deferral of the non-refundable deposit or program fees is allowed. Text and materials related to courses may constitute an additional cost.
It is highly recommended that participants complete the four courses in sequential order. The certificate is awarded after the completion of all four courses, including all quizzes, assignments, and exams. This represents approximately 203 hours of training including online sessions, home study, assignments, and exam preparation. The participants must attain a minimum of 65% for each module and an aggregate average of at least 75% in the program.
