# Undergraduate Course: Engineering Thermodynamics 2 (SCEE08006)

 School School of Engineering College College of Science and Engineering Credit level (Normal year taken) SCQF Level 8 (Year 2 Undergraduate) Availability Available to all students SCQF Credits 10 ECTS Credits 5 Summary This course provides a basic grounding in the principles and methods of Classical Thermodynamics. It concentrates on: understanding the thermodynamic laws in relation to familiar experience; phase change, ideal gas and flow processes; using sources of data like thermodynamic tables and charts; application of the basic principles to the operation of various engine cycles.
