Objectives of Programme's Learning Outcomes

  • Understand the theoretical and methodological fundamentals in arts, science, engineering and construction to solve problems involving these disciplines
    • Identify, describe and explain the basic artistic, scientific and mathematical principles
    • Identify, describe and explain the basic principles of engineering sciences and construction
    • Understand laboratory techniques: testing, measuring, monitoring protocol, and security
    • Select and thoroughly apply knowledge, methods and tools in arts, sciences, engineering sciences and construction to solve problems involving these disciplines
  • Collaborate, work in a team
    • Interact effectively with other students to carry out collaborative projects.
  • Communicate in a structured way - visually, orally and in writing, in French and English - giving clear, accurate, and reasoned information
    • Use several methods of written and graphic communication: text, tables, equations, sketches, maps, graphs, etc.
    • Present analysis or experiment results in laboratory reports

Learning Outcomes of UE

understand the basic concepts of Thermodynamics; establish and apply the calculation methods allowing the determination of thermodynamic properties and their variations for simple thermodynamic transformations; establish the mathematical expressions of iso-property curves in thermodynamic diagrams; use thermodynamic diagrams; apply the first and second laws of thermodynamics; understand and establish the energy principles of thermodynamic cycle machines establish and use the fluid phase equilibria equations for pure compounds and mixtures as well as chemical equilibria equations; apply the first and second law of thermodynamics to simple open systems; understand the working principles of thermodynamic machines (power engines, refrigeration machines and heat pumps), calculate their energy performances and understand the principles of improvement of their performances analyse complex energy processes and calculate their performances;

Content of UE
