This 3-hour audio online course covers chemical process engineering. It provides a wealth of practical advise and anecdotes from the course author, who has over 40 years of experience designing, installing and troubleshooting process systems in multiple industries.

Many aspects of process engineering are covered, ranging from considerations during system analysis to relying on plant operators when you're troubleshooting a system or you're considering process improvements. However, much of the discussion is not specific to process engineering, but rather focuses on work sound engineering guidance that is applicable to all disciplines. Mechanical engineers, piping engineers, rotating equipment engineers, project engineers, and even industrial engineers will benefit from this course.
