Engineering thermodynamics

Individual course

If you are taking this course as part of a FITech minor, please note that all minors will be offered for the last time in the academic year 2021-2022. Please check the individual courses for updates regarding future availability.

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.
