Indus is happy to introduce ourselves as leading professional training provider for Piping Design Engineering. This training programme creates immense opportunities for graduates in one of the fast growing engineering solutions called as PG Diploma in Piping Design Engineering as per ASME Codes.

Piping Design Engineers play a vital role in development or re-construction of Plants, related to Oil & Gas Industries, Power Plant, Fertilizers Industries and Food Industries etc. Piping Design Engineers will be involved from the planning stage to the functioning stage of the Plant. The major work of a Piping Design Engineer is to develop the General Assembly Drawing (GAD), routing Pipe’s, Generating Isometric Drawings, selecting Material of Construction & assuring the safety of pipe by performing Pipe Stress Analysis.
