[syllabus] | [homework]

This course is designed to be an introductory course to engineering heat transfer. Concepts
including control volume analysis, conservation laws of mass, momentum and energy, conduction,
laminar and turbulent convection, phase change and radiation will be developed and applied. The
problems and examples will include theory and applications drawn from a wide range of engineering
design and manufacturing problems.

The course grade will be based on two midterm exams and an end of the year project with the following weight:
Homework             25%
Hour Exams (2)      50%
