The Stationary Engine Mecanics program prepares students for the profession of stationary engineer.
Stationary engineers work in real estate complexes, government or municipal establishments, health or educational institutions, service industries (surveillance, system maintenance and repair), thermal power plants that produce electricity or supply heating and air conditioning to various clients, or for companies that transform raw materials or produce finished goods. They are responsible for ensuring the correct installation and operation of heating and refrigeration systems, as well as ventilation and air conditioning systems in buildings.
Stationary engineers are responsible for stationary engines such as boilers, steam generators, steam turbines or engines, refrigeration devices, internal combustion engines, etc., along with any accessories and pipework. They control the operation of stationary engines to ensure the comfort of individuals who work or live in the facilities, and they must oversee the different production processes. The upkeep of these systems falls under their duties.
As they must operate and maintain pressure vessels, and because they manipulate dangerous substances, such as gas, stationary engineers must hold a certificate of qualification.
This course is only offered in English.
