INT 10070 - Thermodynamics, Thermal Energy, and Heat Transfer

1 CR
Thermal Science presents the functions of thermal systems, thermal energy and heat transfer, thermodynamic laws and properties, refrigeration thermodynamics, and refrigeration/heat pump operation. In this module, the student will learn key topics and skills in temperature measurement, pressure measurement, thermal expansion, thermal system power, enthalpy and phase change, gas laws and phase equilibrium, and phase diagrams. These concepts are essential in order to fully understand thermal system design and operation.

Course Learning Outcomes:
  1. Apply general math, science, and engineering skills to the solution of engineering problems.
  2. Apply core concepts in Materials Science to solve engineering problems.
  3. Knowledgeable of contemporary issues relevant to Materials Science and Engineering.
  4. Select materials for design and construction.
  5. Design and conduct experiments and analyze data.
  6. Understand the professional and ethical responsibilities of a materials scientist and engineer.
