Since 1980 SPED has been dedicated to the training, evaluation and certification of piping engineers and designers in the process industries
I graduated from U of H in 1987 with a BSME in Technology. I started to get a second degree in Process & Piping Design at University of Houston - Downtown campus some years later. At the time, Piping Design was not available as an undergraduate program. But, l found myself overwhelmed supporting a family of six and working 40 to 50 hr/wk. Well, time have changed and some colleges offer on-line courses; in lieu of, taking the courses on campus.
