 On completion of this course, the student will be able to: The student will develop a fundamental and practical understanding of thermal energy transport.They will learn techniques required to analyse and design heat-transfer processes and systems.An important aspect will be the development of sound engineering judgement for recognition of salient heat-transfer issues and the capability to estimate quantitatively their effects.
 The text book Fundamentals of Heat and Mass Transfer 7th Edition by Bergman, Lavine, Incropera, and DeWitt, John Wiley and Sons, (2011) will be a required text.
 Graduate Attributes and Skills Not entered Special Arrangements The tutorial sessions will include a group (3-4 students) design assignment spanning several sessions, with a report. The report marks will constitute 20% of the final marks. Keywords heat transfer
