Announces
A 6 day, short term course for faculty of engineering colleges and scientists of R&D organisations. The course will be useful for engineers in industry and entrepreneurs in cryogenic business
CRYOGENIC TECHNOLOGY: MATERIALS, PROCESSES & EQUIPMENT – 2012 (Open Course)
Date: March 11-16, 2013 (Monday – Saturday)
INTRODUCTION & SCOPE OF THE COURSE:
Cryogenic technology deals with production, maintenance and applications of low temperature, typically below -150˚C. With the advancement of technology and growth of human knowledge, cryogenics is gaining more relevance in all spheres of social milieu. Today cryogenic technology is applied in medical, biological and food preservation processes as well as in futuristic technology like fusion reactors for power generation and deep space probe.
In view of the growing demand of cryogenics, both at national and global levels, this course is conducted to impart basic understandings on theories and practices of cryogenic engineering. Efforts will be made to address the broader spectrum of issues rather than discussing in depth on a particular topic. The participant will learn to use the fundamentals, equations and concepts in their particular applications of research, developmental activities and operations of cryogenic installations.
