A specialist qualification that is recognised by industry experts
Taught by distance e-learning so you can fit in study around your work
The first course in the UK to specialise in combustion engineering at a commercial level
International students can apply
Industrial Combustion Engineering is a significant market sector which functions between the electrical and mechanical disciplines. A competent engineer needs to have a knowledge and understanding of thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and the chemistry of combustion and process engineering.
A formal training and qualification route for industrial combustion engineers does not currently exist. The result of this is a world-wide shortage of skilled competent combustion engineers.
This course has been designed to meet this shortage, and is suitable for graduates and professional engineers who wish to gain specialist knowledge and skills in the field of commercial and industrial combustion engineering, or who wish to formalise and progress in their current profession.
This course aims:
To provide engineers and industrial practitioners with specialist skills and advanced knowledge to work within industrial and commercial combustion engineering processes.
To develop engineers and scientists with a systematic and a critical awareness of burner technology and its utilisation within industrial and commercial processes (oil and gas).
To provide comprehensive knowledge and a critical understanding of gas safety standards and its application to industrial/commercial combustion processes.
To develop the student professionally to make informed decisions on the design, development, installation and commissioning of industrial and commercial combustion systems.
There are three qualifications available, each taking a total of one year. To attain the competent engineer certification you will need to complete a PgDip.
Teaching is delivered online by e-learning.
You will required to attend the University of Salford for a two week period for laboratory teaching and assessment.
You will be assessed through:
You will be able to enter or progress in careers in the designing, commissioning, servicing and maintaining of industrial or commercial combustion equipment.
Examples of jobs you could apply for with this qualification might be Service Engineer, Commissioning Engineer, Design Engineer.
LINKS WITH INDUSTRY
This course was designed in conjunction with Advanced Combustion Engineering Ltd (ACE) a regional burner manufacturing company.
It was their concerns of the lack of formalised training in the commercial combustion engineering sector that they approached the university to devise a programme that would meets these concerns.
