What is EQUIK Program
EQUIK is a family of simulation training programs designed by Equinox. There are 3 modules in the EQUIK Family
EQUIK.PROCESS: Covers Steady-State Simulation
EQUIK.PLANT: Covers both Steady-State and Dynamic Simulation
EQUIK.CONTROL: Covers Dynamic Simulation
EQUIK batches are run using different simulators, like Aspen Hysys, Honeywell UniSim, Aspen Plus, for example. A participant is free to choose a batch of his/her choice, based on the simulator one intends to learn. The course content includes real life examples from Oil & Gas, Refining and Chemical industries.
Who is Equinox
Equinox Software And Services Private Limited (Equinox in short; visit us at: www.equinoxweb.co.in ) is a professional consulting services and training company,incorporated in Pune, India. Equinox is managed by a group of professionals having rich experience in simulation software industry in sales, consulting and training, with leading multinational companies, such as Aspen Technology, Hyprotech, Prax Air, Hyperion and SABIC to name a few
Who will be the trainers?
The program will be conducted by in-house experienced faculties, under the mentoring of following senior consultants:
Dr. Sanjiv M. Bachal, doctorate in Chemical Engineering from IIT, Mumbai with almost 25+ years of experience in product and process development activities starting from conceptual stage to the production.
Mr. Nitin Jain, Graduate Chemical Engineer with 20 yrs experience in plant operations,commissioning, and dynamic simulations.
Mr. Shailesh Sakarkar, Graduate Chemical Engineer with 20 yrs experience in plant operations, commissioning, and process simulations.
Faculty What will be the content of the program?
Highly Experienced Faculty having in-depth experience in Plant Operations, Simulation and IT Application in Chemical Industries.This program is applicable for final year students, as well as for engineers having 2-3 years’ experience, who are desirous of acquiring additional skills for career progression. Therefore, it has been designed to cover the basic application of steady-state and dynamic modeling in process engineering. The course will cover actual problems, from Equinox’s project experience to give the participant’s a real-life feel of applying simulation technology. The course, though focused on simulation technology, will also give an overview of other software applications in chemical engineering, both in design and operations.
Lastly, the course will have an objective type test at the end. The students scoring 80%+ will be awarded the course merit certificate
What are the course timings?
This program will run on week days (Mon to Fri) from 10.00 AM to 5.00 PM, with 30 Min break for lunch and two breaks for tea, of 15 Min each, one in the morning and another in the afternoon
What are the job prospects?
Today, almost all chemical engineering tasks are carried out on simulators in the industry. Hence, a good working knowledge of a simulator, in-addition to your good grasp of chemical engineering, will increase your chances of employment many fold. In India itself, more than 200 companies are using the simulators that Equinox will be covering in these EQUIK modules. Plus in last 5 years, more than 100 multinational companies have setup operations in India and need engineers trained in simulation technology.
Does equinox provide any job guarantee
No, Equinox does not offer any job guarantee. However, Equinox will offer a lot of good placement advice and assistance through its network of industry contacts.

How many such program has Equionx conducted before?
Equinox has conducted many corporate training programs in the area of fundamental chemical engineering, steady-state and dynamic modeling. All the mentors, have also conducted hundreds of programs in India and abroad. Some of our prestigious clients for training services include, BPCL, Technip Abudhabi, Reliance, GAIL, HPCL, Essar, HBTI, UPES, PTT Thailand, etc.
What is spread between theory and practical?
Equinox follow a hands-on course curriculum with more than 50 % of the course time spent on a commercial simulator.
What is the eligibility to attend EQUIK?
As mentioned in the earlier content related answer, any student or practicing engineer with a back ground in chemical engineering and chemical plants, which could include instrumentation engineer or diploma holders in chemical engineering benefit from this program. However, EQUIK.PROCESS or EQUIK.PLANT is a pre-requsite for joining EQUIK.CONTROL program.
