We run a range of CPD short courses in power transmission and motion control. Our courses focus on fluid power systems, electrical drives and control.
Our courses are delivered by experienced staff and researchers at the University of Bath. On-campus courses include our comprehensive course notes, plus:
- classroom tutorials
- hands-on lab work
- access to computer facilities and wireless network
- lunches and refreshments
- a campus parking permit
Our standard courses are run in partnership with the Institute for Mechanical Engineering (IMechE). We also run a series of courses on specialised topics and can create bespoke courses for delivery in-person at your or our facilities or online.
Study with us and you will gain a detailed understanding of the course material. You'll apply this theory in experimental laboratory sessions, tutorials, design exercises and computer simulation classes. You'll receive a certificate of attendance for completing the course.
Most of our courses are three-and-a-half days long. All our standard courses are VAT-exempt.
