The Wolfson Centre offers a range of very popular and useful short courses designed specifically for industry. We have been delivering short courses for over 25 years, both at the university and in the workplace. Over this time we've developed strong links with industry, offering consultancy, research projects and short courses that combine technological excellence with personalised teaching. We have now included practical sessions with some of our courses, to help delegates consolidate the theory.
All our courses are designed to suit the needs of engineers, whether in the pharmaceutical, food processing, minerals, power generation or recycling industries; in fact anyone involved in the handling of bulk solid materials or the flow of powders will benefit. They are designed for engineers, managers, skilled operatives, maintenance crew or anyone involved in using powders or particulates.
You don't need advanced qualifications either - a basic technical education and/or industry experience is enough.
