Complex technical concepts made easy ! Really enjoyed this course ! Additional resources are of high quality and very insightful. I loved the high quality overall detailed refining scheme so much that I did actually print it and put it in our meeting room at work ! I work in the quality department of a small refinery and this course was very interesting for me. All my colleagues loved the refinery drawing. I advised them to enroll in...
Nancy Kramer, Refinery Quality Engineer
I really enjoyed this course and I'm impressed by the ability of the instructor to simplify complex technical topics ! This course is perfect for me as a beginner. I really appreciate all the petroleum process schemes also attached at the end of the course and that can be downloaded in pdf format. It gave me the opportunity to progress offline and study them at my pace. The last lecture is really a plus to this course because after examining each process separately, the instructor illustrated in the last video how they are connected to each other and how they all work together. It really gave me a "helicopter view" of a typical crude oil refinery. Thank you for this wonderful course !
Thomas Lodge, Chemical Engineer
Involved and well narrated, this course has proven valuable for my new career. Thank you for providing this excellent course !
