MECH5255 Air Conditioning and Refrigeration |
6 | P MECH3260 or MECH8260 or MECH9260 or equivalent study at another institution A Students are expected to be familiar with the basic laws of thermodynamics, fluid mechanics and heat transfer N MECH4255 |
MECH5265 |
6 | P (MECH3260 or MECH8260 or MECH9260) and (MECH3261 or MECH8261 or MECH9261) or equivalent study at another institution |
AMME5292 |

MECH5275 |
6 | A The student will need a sound background in advanced level fluid mechanics, thermodynamics and heat transfer. In particular, students should be able to analyse fluid flow in turbomachinery; perform first and second law thermodynamic analysis of energy conversion systems, including chemically reacting systems; and perform advanced level calculations of conductive and convective and radiative heat transfer, including radiative spectral analysis |
Units taken for the specialisation will also count toward requirements of the Mechanical stream. |
