Opportunity for Master of Mechanical engineering

Master of mechanical engineering After graduated from Master of mechanical engineering study, we were hired by company in entry level. Soon or later, we will face 2 options in pursuing our career. We may choose technical specialist or we take a structural position such as supervisor or manager. Which one is better? It depends on success criteria that we have. Most structural position or leadership position, will have a little bit technical jobs. They will manage a team consisted a group of people with different background. They will prepare a “score card” in the beginning of year and then make[…]

Young, smart and diligent… fresh graduate engineer

fresh graduate engineer As long as I became an engineer, I was a mentor for 5 apprentices. 2 persons are already employed as engineers at an Oil and Gas Operating Company and 1 person working in an oil and gas Service Company. They got the job very easily, in a matter of months since graduating from college. They have the same characteristics. Young, smart and diligent. They have almost perfect academic score as fresh graduate engineer. The world of work is full of competition. Only people who are ready to face the competition will succeed. Wise man say “if you[…]

Master of Mechanical Engineering : advance engineering mathematics

  One way to be the best Mechanical Engineer is to train ourself through pursuing Master of Mechanical Engineering. The study will be 3 semesters for learning advance knowledge – including advance engineering mathematics- and 1 semester for conducting research. In Mechanical Engineering, more than 50% study is related to mathematic and physics.  We must understand the distinction between pure mathematics and engineering mathematics. In engineering mathematics, we learn applied mathematics to solve technical problem during equipment design or during field troubleshooting. In advance engineering mathematic, we learn Fourier Series. By using Fourier approach, we can re-write a periodic curve[…]

Risk Based Inspection – Metric

Risk based inspection Metric     Risk Based Inspection is a study to develop inspection plan based on equipment risk ranking. Mathematically, Risk is defined as PoF x CoF. What is PoF ? PoF or Probability of failure is a rank that tell us about how likely a equipment will fail. CoF or Consequence of failure is a rank that tell us about how much failure impacts. In a simple way PoF, CoF and Risk are 3 terms that we used to rank all equipment in a company. Risk based inspection metric may consist of 3×3 , 4×4, 5×5 or[…]
