Intended learning outcomes

After the course, the student shall   

  • have some proficiency in fluid mechanics, hydromechanics and heat transfer
  • understand how the energy of a system of bodies and masses can be transformed from one form to another
  • be able to compute heat flows in various media
  • be able to size devices such as pumps and fans
  • know the operation and denominations for elementary and standard components in mechanical engineering, as well as simple functional analyses of these
  • be able to select and size machine elements

The course forms the basis for solving problems within design and production.
