Course description

This course caters, mainly, to Engineers, Technicians and Facilities Managers who are not intimately familiar with Mechanical Engineering Principles and Practices. Through this course, attendees are expected to learn basic principles of mechanical engineering in a simple, easy to understand, format. This course will enable attendees to accomplish straightforward and common calculations associated mechanical engineering concepts such as statics, kinetics, kinematics, materials, mechanics of materials, fluid mechanics, hydraulic machines, thermodynamics, refrigeration cycle, financial evaluation and decision making
associated with typical engineering projects. Most concepts are presented in basic and easy to understand terms. Mechanical engineering concepts are illustrated by practical numerical problems and case studies. Past experience has shown that even professionals without engineering education can take away a commensurate amount of engineering knowledge from “cross-discipline” skill building seminars, such as this one.


Why you shouldn’t miss this seminar – How this seminar can benefit your organizations, what is unique about this course:

1. Have you ever felt somewhat inadequate and ill-equipped in your technical
discussions with mechanical or civil engineers? If so, then this course or seminar is a must.

2. Do you, as an engineer, manager, or technician, feel that your knowledge and
understanding of static or dynamic mechanical system analyses, trusses and beams in static equilibrium, fluid systems, refrigeration cycles, heat engines, sensible and latent heat calculations is inadequate or weak? Not to worry, this seminar/course will help you bridge that gap

3. How often do you get a chance to attend a workshop, course or a seminar that is presented by the author of a text book pertinent to the subject?

Your instructor is the author of “Thermodynamics Made Simple for Energy Engineers (a copy of the book is available at additional cost)

4. As an engineer, technician or manager have you ever found the concept of thermal and mechanical properties of engineering materials, phase diagrams and Lever’s Rule elusive and hard to comprehend? Then, this workshop will present an excellent opportunity for you to remedy that.

5. Imagine yourself, as an engineer or manager with little or no mechanical
engineering background, at 2 o’clock in the morning, in a triage situation, leading a team of mechanical engineers, maintenance engineers, utilities engineers – trying to troubleshoot the root cause of failure of a complex mechanical system. This seminar is an opportunity for you to bridge that mechanical engineering gap in your knowledge and fortify your confidence to lead multi-discipline teams of engineers and enable you to make informed objective decisions.

6. How often do you get an opportunity to understand abstract and complex
mechanical concepts through relatively simple analogies and explanation? This
seminar will provide you that invaluable opportunity.

7. Last, but not least – If you are not a licensed Professional Engineer, but aspire to be one and if you are rusty in the fundamentals of mechanical engineering concepts and principles, then this two (2) day course could serve as a “warm-up” on many mechanical engineering principles, concepts and problem analyses techniques.
