Thermal Engineering Systems

MET 4200 4 Semester Hours
Course Level CPS - Undergraduate Semester
Description Covers the fundamentals and techniques for design of thermofluids systems and components, including details of the engineering design process, design factors, creativity, optimization, safety, and value engineering. Applies concepts and principles of analysis learned in thermodynamics, heat transfer, fluid mechanics, and basic electricity to design thermal hardware such as heat and mass exchangers, turbines, expanders, compressors, pumps, boilers, and engines that are typically used in industries such as power generation; electric and gas utilities; refrigeration; air-conditioning; heating; and in the food, chemical, and process industries. Integrates computer usage for efficient and rapid design, formula evaluation, mathematical simulation, design selection and optimization, and virtual prototyping. Additional topics include cost analysis, robustness, quality improvement, and environmental considerations of thermal engineering design.


Students should refer to the CPS Prerequisite Table for course prerequisite and corequisite information.
