July 25, 2013, Houston, TX – In an effort to expand our community presence and help students expand their education and interests, Piping Technology & Products is excited to announce our new partnership with the University of Houston’s College of Technology. As the goal of the UH College of Technology is to provide the highest quality education in fields such as mechanical engineering, construction management, and computer engineering, so is Piping Technology’s goal to help educate people interested in these fields as a public service to the community. As online courses become the norm for many colleges these days, PT&P realized this would be the perfect way to combine our thirty five years of manufacturing experience with the UH College of Technology’s established reputation.
This new online course is titled “Piping Design & Analysis Influence on Pipe Support Selection and Design”. The course covers the following topics: piping design and how it effects the overall configuration on preliminary piping design, initial layout, the total system, introduction to pipe stress analysis, detailed piping design, and how all of this influences pipe support and pipe hanger design. This is a self-paced course consisting of eight sections. The student will have four weeks to complete the eight sessions, which must be taken in sequential order.
This is an online course only, with no classroom meetings required.
This course is approved for 8 PDH hours for Texas Professional Engineers.
