Course content

3 good reasons to study Industrial and Commercial Combustion Engineering at Salford:

  • A specialist qualification that is recognised by industry experts
  • Taught by distance e-learning so you can fit in study around your work
  • The first course in the UK to specialise in combustion engineering at a commercial level.

Course Summary

Industrial Combustion Engineering is a significant market sector which functions between the electrical and mechanical disciplines. A competent engineer needs to have a knowledge and understanding of thermodynamics, fluid dynamics, and the chemistry of combustion and process engineering.

A formal training and qualification route for industrial combustion engineers does not currently exist. The result of this is a world-wide shortage of skilled competent combustion engineers.

This course has been designed to meet this shortage, and is suitable for graduates and professional engineers who wish to gain specialist knowledge and skills in the field of commercial and industrial combustion engineering, or who wish to formalise and progress in their current profession.
