Engineering thermodynamics

Individual course

This course is for those who wish to refresh and deepen their knowledge in thermodynamics.

During the course you will get acquainted with the foundations of thermodynamics, and how these can be used to tackle some engineering problems using mathematical models.

Key topics in the course are the use of macro balances for additive quantities, the basic principles of modeling, and the practical implications of the laws of thermodynamics.

You will gain understanding of problems in energy technology and estimation and calculation of thermodynamic quantities needed. You will also learn commonly accepted computational simplifications which makes it possible to tackle problems in the systems studied.

More information in Åbo Akademi’s course page.

You can get a digital badge after completing this course.

NB! You will find this course under the name “FITech-Tku Fall 2020” on the Degree students’ application form and under the name “FITech-ES Fall 2020” on the Adult learners’ application form.
