ENEM13014 Thermodynamics

Course details

Students investigate of the flow of energy (heat) and work done in engineering processes, apply and explain key concepts and processes in thermodynamics and explain the procedures used to analyse the flow of energy and heat in liquids and gasses. Students use energy equations and the laws of thermodynamics to analyse and solve problems. They analyse the heat energy cycle for heat engines and heat pumps. They communicate effectively regarding technical aspects of thermodynamics, prepare technical and laboratory reports, clearly document technical procedures problem solutions, and evaluate uncertainties and the results of their work. Students develop a capacity to work, learn and communicate ethically and professionally, as individuals and in teams, to investigate and solve problems and present solutions.

Distance education (FLEX) students are required to have access to a computer, to make frequent use of the Internet, and are required to participate in Residential School activities.
