The Programs-in-Brief

Program

Synopsis…

Quality and Reliability Engineering [QRE]

QRE is about the design and management of processes that lead to reliable systems with built-in quality, safety maintainability using effective measurement and planning tools. At the end of the course, participants will be able to: Understand the importance of Quality and Reliability/Use methods for measuring and improving quality and reliability of equipment, structures and systems/ Develop quality and reliability program plans for facilities/Adopt best practices in introducing Quality Management Systems into organisations

Power System Economics & Planning (PSEP)

PSEP provides practical understanding of the economic principles underlying the operation and planning of electric power systems including concepts of electricity markets and competition in electricity generation and supply. It introduces economic analysis and optimization techniques underlying reliability assessment of electric power systems planning. It focuses on: Microeconomic basics for power systems/Optimization methods and programming for economic analysis of power system operations and planning/ Operation of electric power markets /Energy plans and power project execution forecasts/ Energy audit systems/ Economic dispatch, load forecasting, planning and reliability analysis/ Financial risk management for power systems.

Quantity Surveying and Project Valuation [QSPE]

The course is intended for professionals in the Built Environment to build capacity on modern project costing and valuation techniques including contract administration. The course focuses on: Identifying the role of the Quantity Surveyor in planning and cost control/Standard Principles of Measurement and preparing Bills of Quantities/ Technical specifications for building construction and project cost estimation and project valuation/ Legal requirements, building and environmental regulations/Types of contracts and administering contracts, contract documents and construction procurement process best practices.

5Advanced Computer Applications for Engineers [ACA4E]

The course introduces participants to various advanced computer applications, systems and tools used for modelling, simulating and analysing engineering processes, data, systems and applications. Key computer applications covered in this course include: types of engineering statistical software, engineering computer simulation   and modelling software, Advanced AutoCAD/ArchiCAD, and MATLAB.

Advanced Technical Report Writing [ATR]

The course introduces engineers to various aspects of technical report writing and covers detailed aspects of how to compile and write a technical reports by providing a systematic and easy to understand approach to writing of these reports. The topics covered includes how to: effectively plan and structure technical reports /recognise the various stages in writing a technical report/ examine the structure, layout and   presentation of successful reports/have a clear understanding of the different sections within a report /understand the importance of knowing who you are writing the report for, and why /enhance writing skills to get 'straight to the point', using effective sentences and paragraphs /ensure that reports are sequential, logical, and easy-to-read/understand the importance of drafting and accurately proofreading a technical report/ develop a positive report writing style/understand how to present graphical data.

Occupational

Health, Safety

& Risk [OHSR]

The course focuses on latest trends, knowledge and best practices in managing health, safety and environmental risk at the workplace. It is designed for workers in the Engineering, Process, Oil/Gas, Mining, Manufacturing, Construction and Building industry and related industries where adherence to health/safety are paramount. At the end of the course participants will: Understand the need for occupational health and safety management /Understand practical health and safety management issues   in the industry/Understand the categories of hazards associated with Petroleum Exploration and production/Understand the nature of risk assessment and control, importance of monitoring, auditing and reviewing occupational health programs in an organisation to develop workable Health and Safety Policy in an organisation/Develop effective Occupational Health, Safety & Risk policy and practices in an organisation

Management for Engineers [MGT4E]

This program based on the   UK Engineering Council syllabus is about management principles, organizational structures, and performance measurement and control issues of particular relevance to engineering, technology and operations management. Modules covered include: General & Strategic Management; Financial Management, Budgeting & Accounting; Marketing, Procurement, Purchasing

& Supply; Human Resource Management, Quality & Productivity; Principles of Project Management; Business Statistics & Management Science; Emerging & Contemporary Issues in Management

Contract Negotiation for Engineers [CN4E]

The Course concentrates on the negotiation process from a wide perspective and the events leading up to the actual series of meetings as well as subsequent events involving implementation of the contract. Topics include: Negotiation Strategy and Tactics,     Contract Content & Due Diligence/Win-Win Negotiation, Listening and Questioning Skills/ Bargaining Power, Transactional Analysis and Negotiating Variations/ Legal issues on contract, Identifying Unfair Contract and Clauses.

Engineering Project Management [EPM]

EPM delivers   proven methodologies and strategies from the project initiation process, budgeting, planning and logistics management and eventual execution and   implementation and management of various aspect of projects. The use of new technologies and software in Project Management are introduced to assist participants become proactive, plan with precision to track the project implementation process. Cases are engineering based

Engineering Ethics and Professional Responsibility [EEPR]

The course examines various aspects of engineering ethics and professional responsibility by addressing issues relating to: the distinctions between law, morality, and ethics/why professional engineers have specific ethical responsibilities /identifying   the sources and types of ethical conflicts engineers are likely to confront/applying appropriate codes of ethics to resolve conflicts. Key topics covered include: Defining Professional Ethics /Recognizing Ethical Issues/Identifying Resources for Ethical Conduct /Strategies for Coping with Ethical Issues in Engineering.
