Students intending to qualify in this Engineering Area must include at least six of the modules listed below.
|3A1||Fluid Mechanics I (double module)|
|3A3||Fluid Mechanics II (double module)|
|3A5||Thermodynamics and Power Generation|
|3A6||Heat and Mass Transfer|
|3B4||Electric Drive Systems|
|4M16||Nuclear Power Engineering|
Power generation and environmental engineering are central to the advancement of a sustainable future in developed and emerging economies. Energy engineering and sustainability are broad interdisciplinary subjects. This Engineering Area offers the opportunity to draw together modules across electrical, mechanical and civil engineering, underpinned by fluid mechanics and thermodynamics. For example, 3A1 introduces incompressible fluid flows, and 3A5 focuses on power generation in gas and steam turbine plants, and fuel cells. But in parallel, thermofluids may be studied in other application areas, such as buildings and infrastructure (3D5 and 3D8, complemented by part IIB modules such as Architectural Engineering and Sustainable Development). Across part IIA and IIB, this Engineering Area enables students to study the whole power industry and associated technologies (fossil fuel, nuclear and renewable energy).
Students who are planning to take Nuclear Engineering modules in part IIB (4I5, 4I10, 4I11) should take module 4M16 in part IIA.
Specialist advice on this Engineering Area can be obtained from the Engineering Area coordinator, Prof S. Hochgreb
