Thermofluids are a fundamental aspect in engineering industry and understanding their behaviour and operation are key to safe and efficient operations.

Thermofluids is a field relevant to almost all engineering applications, focusing on heat transfer, thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and combustion. Applications range from power generation, renewable energy, fluid flow, hydraulics and pneumatics, HVAC and engine propulsion.

We understand that engineers in the field need to be well prepared for almost any challenge in a variety of industries, so we have designed courses to enable you to create safe, efficient and sustainable thermofluid systems, utilising latest technology advances and complying to existing regulations.


We designed these courses to be very practical, so attendees can apply what they learn in their jobs.
