New mini-courses for practising engineers
Concordia’s Faculty of Engineering and Computer Science will offer a new series of courses throughout March for practising engineers. These courses are designed for members of the Ordre des ingénieurs du Québec (OIQ), who must complete 30 hours of professional development before March 31.
Each course, worth 7.5 hours of credits toward OIQ requirements, is taught by a full-time faculty member who is a recognized leader in his or her field.
“We’ve tailored these courses to the needs of professionals already working in the field,” says Deborah Dysart-Gale, director of the Centre for Engineering in Society and one of the instructors. “The initial 10 courses are very diverse, and if participants would like even more to choose from, we'll have new offerings in the future.”
All of the courses will be offered at Concordia’s downtown campus in the Engineering, Computer Science and Visual Arts Integrated Complex (EV Building, 1515 Ste-Catherine St. W.). The class size is capped at 25.
The courses offered in March are:
• Writing for Clarity for Engineers
• Computer System Design
• Concepts and Progress in Power Generation and Energy Systems Engineering
• Transportation Asset Management
• Brief Introduction to Lean Manufacturing and Value Stream Mapping
• Brief Introduction to Cloud Computing
• Wind Effects on Buildings
• Navigation Systems
• Introduction to Finite Element Method
• Fundamentals of Project Cost Estimating
