Piping Engineering is a specialized discipline of Mechanical Engineering which covers the design of piping and layout of equipment and process units in chemical, petrochemical or hydrocarbon facilities. Piping Engineering is ‘Half Art & Half Science’

Art part includes visualization and creativity. Science part includes following the certain established norms. Science means we need to follow the established guidelines to execute things in standard way. Lets look at below definitions of Codes & standards to understand how the standardized things are important.

Codes: A group of rules or systematic procedures for design, fabrication, installation , examination & inspection; prepared in such a manner that it can be adopted by legal jurisdiction and made into law. 

StandardsDocuments prepared by a recognized professional group or committee which contain mandatory requirements.

This course is for beginners, and it explains each and everything required to get introduced with the piping engineering. Once a candidate go through the course, he/she can understand various other modules of piping engineering.
