This course introduces the basic concepts of combustion, heat transfer, steam and gas power plants and the relevant analysis of the various system components. Engineers are interested in studying systems and how they interact with their surroundings. To facilitate this, the subject of thermodynamics is extended to the study of systems through which matter flows. This course therefore prepares them for working on technologies in industries that involve energy conversations and transfers.


  • To develop their skills and knowledge in the following areas; thermodynamic systems (properties and processes); calculations of changes in a thermodynamic system and evaluation of applied thermodynamic systems
  • Develop the skills of students to identify, formulate and solve the thermodynamic problems applied to industrial engineering in a logical and systematic way
