Presentation

19th EDITION
UPC School

Adequate maintenance of industrial equipment and installations requires their proper setup and implementation. In this postgraduate course students will learn about the necessary conditions required to keep equipment in proper working order as well as the different maintenance techniques associated with each type of equipment.

A maintenance technicians needs to have comprehensive knowledge of industrial installations as well as possess an understanding of the techniques for prevention and rapid and effective resolution of equipment break downs.

The industry professionals, who are acting as professors on this course, add a very practical element to the student¿s experience.

Aims

  • To become familiar with the means and techniques needed to set up equipment and quickly and safely resolve problems that come up in industrial installations.
  • To diagnose and prevent break downs in installations.

Who is it for

 Engineers or Technical engineers. Technical and industry professionals who want to specialize, update or expand their knowledge in the field of industrial maintenance.
