Maintenance engineering

Introduction

Plant and general maintenance at a professional level offers a career of considerable scope for the ambitious practical man. The intricate nature of modern equipment, machinery, etc., make special demands of the maintenance engineer. These demands can only be met be adequate technical training and quality management applications. By means of planned preventative maintenance activities the operating cost of plant and machinery greatly improve the profitability of a factory or large process plant. The course therefore equips the student with the knowledge and ability to utilize the information learned in real practical applications to plant operation.
