Dr. Seamus McMonagle, course director - Graduate Diploma A Graduate Diploma is generally a postgraduate qualification. Australia
Postgraduate diplomas offered in Australia are typical of those offered in England, Wales, and Ireland. in Chemical Engineering Program, University of Limerick, said, "The Graduate Diploma in Chemical Engineering Program at the University of Limerick is pleased to have been awarded an educational program grant from Intergraph Process, Power & Marine for the use of SmartPlant P&ID. Training in this industry-standard P&ID software allows us to provide our graduates with advanced skills in process design, operation and optimization, with concomitant benefits in their subsequent careers as process engineers in the Irish and international pharmaceuticals and chemicals industries."
Prof. Bob Hurle, head of the University of Western Australia's School of Oil and Gas Engineering Department, said the university plans to expand its involvement in the Educational Grant Program. "Access to software such as SmartSketch, SmartPlant P&ID, SmartPlant Electrical and SmartPlant Instrumentation will dramatically affect the way engineering design is taught and hence put our graduates at the forefront of their field," Hurle said. "Future releases of SmartPlant 3D will be added so integrated engineering Integrated Engineering is a multi-disciplinary, design project based engineering degree program.
Integrated Engnineering is a program created to meet the demand for engineers who are able to deal with a wide range of problems, often involving knowledge from several and design - using existing analytical software Analytical software is software that is designed specifically for and development of a particular environment or object. for process, offshore engineering and naval architecture naval architecture, science of designing ships. A naval architect must consider especially the following factors: floatability, i.e., the ability of the ship to remain afloat while meeting the requirements of the vessel's service under normal and abnormal weather and - can be taught to students."
Grants Bring Advanced Technology to Classroom
The Intergraph Process, Power & Marine Educational Grant Program helps build student proficiency and experience in using engineering software. For educational institutions, the program brings advanced technology software to the classroom, expands course offerings at minimal cost and enables instructors to upgrade skills through commercial training. The program also provides industry with qualified job candidates trained to use the popular Intergraph engineering software. Educational institutions worldwide with engineering and technical curricula associated with the process manufacturing The manufacturing industry that uses process control systems. See process control. , power generation and offshore petroleum industries are eligible to apply for grants, which have a one-year, renewable term.
Grant recipients under the standard program are eligible to receive SmartPlant Instrumentation, SmartPlant P&ID, SmartPlant Electrical and SmartSketch software and maintenance; instructor training; technical installation assistance; and one complimentary registration for the Intergraph Process, Power & Marine APEX industry conference series. A program option includes PDS, SmartPlant 3D and SmartPlant Review, depending on institution curriculum and expertise. Intergraph awards educational grants non-exclusively, without restriction concerning existing or future installations of software from other vendors, to help widen student educational horizons and broaden school curricula.
The program closed 2004 with 13 grants totaling more than $3.8 million (U.S.) in estimated commercial lease value awarded to educational institutions worldwide.
