Course Description

Thermodynamics has evolved with the development of industrialization since the Industrial Revolution and has been used for the understanding of steam engines. In the class, students will understand the fundamentals of thermodynamics such as thermodynamics 1st law and 2nd law.
This course is related to DP3 and DP4E .

Course Objectives

Students can understand the thermodynamics first law and second law which are the basis of thermodynamics. Students can also understand the flow of energy.

Grading Policy

Evaluation will be based on small tests and reports (50%) and results of final exams (50%).
