Graduate capabilities & intended learning outcomes

01. Apply basic thermodynamic principles and laws of physics to analyse and predict the idealised behaviour of thermodynamic systems.

Activities:
Theory and worked examples are provided in the lectures. The knowledge is then practiced in the tutorials and applied in assignments and laboratories.

02. Model and analyse real world thermodynamic systems using appropriate modelling tools and techniques.

Activities:
Modelling examples are provided in the lectures. The knowledge is then practiced in the tutorials and applied in assignments and laboratories.

03. Analyse and describe the thermodynamic properties of matter and the implications of the thermodynamic laws.

Activities:
Theory and worked examples are provided in the lectures. The knowledge is then practiced in the tutorials and applied in assignments and laboratories.

04. Analyse and optimise a real industry related thermodynamic system using appropriate analysis techniques.

Activities:
Analysis of real world systems is demonstrated in the lectures. The knowledge is then practiced in the tutorials and applied in assignments and laboratories.
