This comprehensive course is designed so that students, engineers, chemists, researchers… can use Aspen HYSYS software from scratch to use it in a practical and professional way. Never mind if you have no experience in the software, you will be equally capable of understanding everything and you will finish the course with total mastery of the subject.

After several years working as an Engineer, I have realized that nowadays mastering Aspen HYSYS for simulating and modeling chemical and industrial processes is very necessary in engineering or other industrial applications. Aspen HYSYS is one of the software leaders in the industry and its demand is increasing. Knowing how to use this software can give you many job opportunities and many economic benefits, especially in the world of engineering.

The big problem has always been the complexity to perfectly understand the software it requires, since its absolute mastery is not easy. In this course I try to facilitate this entire learning and improvement process, so that you will be able to carry out and understand your own projects in a short time, thanks to the step-by-step and detailed examples of every concept.

With 8 exclusive hours of video and 20 real hands-on projects, this comprehensive course leaves no stone unturned! It includes both practical exercises and theoretical examples to master Aspen HYSYS. The course will teach you the process simulation of chemical and industrial projects in a practical way, from scratch, and step by step.
