Unit Code: MCD522

Unit Name: Applied Thermodynamics

Description: Engineering technologists are expected to be able to understand the fundamental properties and energies associated with matter; primarily liquids, gases and vapours. The principles of mass and energy conservation will be used to define and examine the relationships between heat, work and other forms of energy. Your studies will include examining power-producing cycles (engines), refrigeration systems and other practical systems to implement the concept of energy conversion.

Learning Target Outcomes: On successful completion of this course, students will be able to: 1. Apply knowledge of engineering fundamentals respectively to wide practical procedures and practices. 2. Identifies relevant constraints and requirements and sets out an accurate description of the problem. 3. Gathers engineering knowledge from sources such as standards and codes of practice and identifies the most relevant. 4. Applies established diagnostic processes and codified methods to define problems. 5. Presents clearly written reports for both technical and lay audiences, as is appropriate. 6. Comprehends and responds appropriately to written and verbal instructions and appropriately instructs or briefs others in group exercises. 7. Applies independent learning practices.
