Why this lifelong learning course?

This lifelong learning course can be taken independently or as part of the postgraduate course in Projection, Design and Calculation of Mechanical, Electrical and Special Installations.

The complexity of today's industrial and commercial buildings shows the importance of planning and calculating optimal electrical, safety and anti-fire installations. Students taking this course in Design and Calculation of Electrical and Special Installations will be able to design and carry out integrated projects in this area.

The course will cover lighting, generators and steam installations. Another part of the course is also devoted to studying oil hydraulic installations. All these specialist courses include the participation of expert professionals from each of these areas.

Aims

The main objective of the programme is to enable participants to carry out designs, calculations, checks and assessments of the various industrial installations in companies in the fields of electricity, lighting, generators, and steam and oil hydraulic installations.

Who is it for?
  • Technical and Senior Engineers.
  • Quantity Surveyors and Senior Architects.
  • Professionals wishing to specialise in the installations field.
