Without exception, the reciprocating piston engine is the most influential machine ever invented by mankind. From its early beginnings as a steam engine, the piston engine has revolutionised the way we live, work and travel. This course will teach you about this truly amazing machine.

You will learn:

  • How An Engine Works

  • How Two Stroke and Four Stroke Engines Work

  • The Difference Between Petrol/Gasoline and Diesel Engines

  • Engine Components (Piston Rings, Rocker Arms, Valves etc.)

  • Engine Systems (Water, Oil, Air, Exhaust and Electrical)

  • Engine Terminology (BDC, TDC, Firing Order etc.)

  • How Engine Ancillaries Work (Turbocharger, Supercharger etc.)

  • A Lot About Mechanical Engineering!

  • A Lot About Automotive Engineering and Automobile Engineering!

  • And a lot more!

*** Note that this course focuses more on the diesel fired engine type rather than the petrol/gasoline type, but gives a general good overview concerning the internal combustion (IC) engine. This video course is part of a Mechanical Engineering video series (see our other courses for more info).***

This course is designed to take you from zero to hero concerning combustion engine knowledge. Even if you already have some background knowledge, this course will serve as an efficient refresher. Whatever your level of understanding, or engineering background (mechanical engineering, automobile engineering, automotive engineering, oil and gas, HVAC, power engineering, chemical engineering etc.), we can guarantee you will have never taken an engineering course like this one (unless you have taken one of our other courses…).
