The Turbomachinery Laboratory Offers Extended Education Opportunities for both Young and Seasoned Engineers
The Turbo Lab, a center of the Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) and the Texas A&M University System, will host two short courses – Rotordynamics and Centrifugal Compressor Operations for 21st Century Users (CCOPS) – from March 18-21 in Houston, Texas.
The two courses offer beginning and intermediate-level professionals an opportunity to accelerate their understanding in an interactive setting for practical applications on the job.
March 2019 Short Courses
Jim Sorokes will teach the CCOPS course with Jeff Moore of Southwest Research Institute, Mark Sandberg of Sandberg Turbomachinery Consulting, LLC., and Jigger Jumonville of Jumonville Engineering. Between the four CCOPS instructors, they possess more than 100 years of professional experience. Sorokes has been an instructor for the course since it was first offered in 1998.
The Rotordynamics course will be taught by Malcolm Leader, owner of Applied Machinery Dynamics in Dickinson, Texas. Leader spends his time conducting theoretical design audits and implementing changes and overseeing installations in the field. He’s written several papers on experimental rotordynamics, bearing design, design audits for rotating equipment and practical implementation of rotordynamics programs. Leader has taught the course for ten years.
The Turbo Lab began hosting short courses in 1995, building upon Texas A&M’s tradition of continuing education and professional workforce development. Each course will be hosted at the DoubleTree by Hilton near Houston Intercontinental Airport. The courses will earn attendees 2.6 Continuing Educations Units or 26 PDH. Prospective attendees can visit turbolab.tamu.edu/short-courses/ to learn more and save when they register early thru March 12, 2019.
The Texas A&M Engineering Experiment Station (TEES) Turbomachinery Laboratory makes a vital impact on turbomachinery and related industries through research, education and professional workforce development.
