Pre-requisite Courses and Assumed Knowledge and Capabilities

Completed MIET2421 and MIET2422


Course Description

This course is a continuation from the fundamental courses on thermodynamics, fluid Mechanics. This course covers advance concepts of thermal and fluid science.

The course aims to equip you with tools and methods to design real-world thermal/fluid systems. Topics include exergy analysis, thermo-economic analysis, rotodynamic machinery, energy storage system, engineering ethics and design decisions and engineering economics and its application in real-world.


Objectives/Learning Outcomes/Capability Development

This course contributes to the following program learning outcomes:

  • Knowledge of engineering design practice and contextual factors impacting the engineering discipline.
  • Application of established engineering methods to complex engineering problem solving.
  • Fluent application of engineering techniques, tools and resources.
  • Application of systematic approaches to the conduct and management of engineering projects.
  • Ethical conduct and professional accountability.
  • Professional use and management of information.


On completion of this course you should be able to:

  1. Analyse real-world thermal/fluid system
  2. Apply established problem-solving methodology for design of thermal-fluid system
  3. Apply techniques, tools and working knowledge of common thermal/fluid systems
  4. Design common real-world thermal/fluid systems


Overview of Learning Activities

Learning activities can include lectures, assignments, tutorials, online test, quizzes and a end of the semester test/exam. Online learning and directed problem-solving activities will be achieved through the tutorials, quizzes and assignment activities.


Overview of Learning Resources

Course-related resources will be provided on the course Canvas site, which is accessed through myRMIT. This material can include lecture material, course notes, sample problem sheets and solutions, details related to the other activities and references.
