15 Credits ACADEMIC YEAR



Aims/Description: The next generation of engineers will address the exciting challenges of commercial space flight, global water security, and sustainable energy generation, and many others. This module will develop the fundamental thermofluids basis and the necessary skills and interdisciplinary agility to address these global challenges. The module will give an introduction to the fundamental principles of thermodynamics required to analyse and design engineering processes, and the basic principles of fluid mechanics and their application to flow systems and devices. Real world examples will be used throughout, to highlight the importance of thermofluid systems and their integration with other areas of engineering.
