About the Organiser

The Indian Institute of Technology Bombay (abbreviated as IITB or IIT Bombay) is a public engineering institution located in Powai, Mumbai, India. IIT Bombay was founded in 1958. In 1961, the Parliament decreed IITs as Institutes of National Importance. A committee formed by the Government of India recommended the establishment of four higher institutes of technology to set the direction for the development of technical education in the country in 1946.

About the Course

Piping Engineering course has been conducted 75 times since 1992. This is the seventy-sixth edition of the course. Piping Engineering is a truly multidisciplinary subject. It draws its knowledge base from various engineering disciplines such as chemical, mechanical, civil, electrical, metallurgical, instrumentation, control. Few design organizations and eminent piping engineers joined hands with IIT Bombay and methodically designed a formal Certificate Course on Piping Engineering for chemical and mechanical engineering graduates.

The course has undergone continuous revisions, helped to a large extent by the feedback given by the participants and the industry. It is now an optimal mixture of theory and practice. The instruction hours are shared by IIT faculty and speakers from industry, the latter playing a significant role. The activity was institutionalized through the formation of a Piping Engineering Cell in CAD Centre, IIT Bombay, which now conducts this course. The Cell has now a collection of most state-of-the-art piping engineering software. This is extensively used during the course.

Course Coverage

Fresh or working, chemical or mechanical engineering graduates are normally preferred. Few seats are also given to the instrumentation, production and refinery-engineering graduates on proven aptitude basis. Diploma holders are normally not admitted. In exceptional cases, diploma holders with considerable relevant experience (at least 7 Years) are admitted. It is an exposure level course and the participant profile is young. Experienced working engineers from operating companies and design organizations also attend in significant numbers and have found the course a horizon – widening experience.

The vastness of the subject and limited duration of the course do not allow in-depth coverage of each and every topic. The topics covered are :

  • Scope of Piping Engineering
  • Codes and Standards
  • Piping Elements & Specialties
  • Mechanical Design Fundamentals
  • Pipe Hydraulics & Sizing
  • Piping Drawing Basics
  • Development of Plot Plan
  • Equipment Layout
  • Process Piping Layout
  • Utility Piping Layout
  • Flexibility Analysis
  • Selection of Supports & Expansion Joint

Exposure Level Lectures are delivered on some of the following topics:

  • Steam Engineering
  • Transient Fluid Flow Analysis
  • Cryogenic Storage
  • Dynamic Analysis
  • Process Insulation
  • Instrumentation and Control

Practicals are an important part of the course. The participants are encouraged to develop rational thinking skills through a case study approach. Exposure to important CAD tools available in Piping Engineering arena is offered.

Multimedia teaching aids are incorporated. This allows the display of three-dimensional plant models, carrying out computer-aided design and engineering in the classroom itself, showing video clippings to support a point etc. At the same time, all care is taken to emphasize on teaching rather than on presentation.

Who may Benefit?

Chemical, Mechanical, Civil, Instrumentation, Petroleum, Production engineers with experience ranging from nil to 30 years have benefited from this course.

Course Fee
  • Rs.65,000/- plus 18% GST (self-financed candidates not working abroad / candidates sponsored by Indian Companies)
  • US $3500/- (Foreign Nationals / Non-Resident Indians, Persons working abroad)
