Fluids Engineering


This major will provide students with a breadth of knowledge and skills in key fluids engineering topics, ranging from fundamental fluid dynamics and thermal engineering, to advanced fluid dynamics concepts in turbulence, experimental methods, and computational fluid dynamics. The specialist units offered in the major will provide students with the ability to analyse and innovate engineering devices and systems that rely on fluid flows in an interdisciplinary context. Through their final year fluids engineering projects students may engage in applications ranging from energy conversion, transport and propulsion, environmental water flows and management, biomedical flows, pharmaceutical drug delivery flows and aerospace.
