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.
• 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.

This programme is for experienced practitioners in the field of commercial combustion engineering who wish to formalise their training or for engineers from other similar backgrounds who wish to enter the commercial combustion engineering field.
If you do not hold a first degree but have appropriate experience, you will be required to produce a portfolio of relevant work experience within the field of engineering as part of the application process.
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.
• Combustion Theory and Burner Design (30 credits)
• Burner Utilisation and Process Control (30 credits)
• Industrial Gas Safety and Regulations (30 credits)
• Industrial Burner Commissioning and Optimisation (30 credits)
• Dissertation (60 credits)
You will be assessed through:
• Coursework 40%
• Examinations 60%
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.
