Aims:
To provide an introduction to Thermodynamics as the science of energy conversion; to introduce the concept heat transfer; to review mechanisms of heat transfer; to apply the principles of heat transfer to the design of simple processes.

Learning Teaching & Assessment Strategy:
Theory, implementation, application, and critical analysis is gained through lectures, tutorials, case studies and directed study, assessed by examination. Engineering application and evaluation is gained from lab sessions, assessed by coursework.
