Class Start: TBA
Duration: 8 weeks
Approximate Workload: 3-6 hours/week
Level: intermediate
Rate this class Go to the class
In this course, you will learn how to characterize the energy state of a system and the mechanisms for transferring energy from one system to another. These are the tools necessary to understand stationary and transportation power systems from small scale, like batteries, to large scale, like nuclear power plants.

A fairly engaging introduction to thermodynamics from an engineering perspective. The emphasis is on practical applications and power generation. Unlike the more theoretical approach of a physics or chemistry course, you will not learn about the molecular theory of gases, the Maxwell-Boltzmann distribution, diffusion, or the thermodynamics of chemical reactions. The Spring 2014 offering was plagued by several annoying errors in the lectures, homework assignments, and lectures notes. If not for those mistakes--which I expect to be fixed before any future offering--I would have given the course at least 4 out of 5 stars.
