Applied Thermodynamics and Fluid Mechanics skill set

State ID: GAB96

Manage thermodynamic, fluid mechanics and controllers in power and energy sectors

The skill set will develop your knowledge in carrying out mechanical design and performance analysis in fluid statics, fluid motion, heat and power exchange in steam and similar power plants, engines and refrigeration systems, to name just a few practical purposes. 

This course is ideal for FIFO workers - talk to us about how you can study this course flexibly.

Gain these skills:

  • Investigate and review sustainability implications, features and functions of Mechanical Engineering sector
  • Software assisted techniques for applications for fluid and thermodynamic principles in engineering
  • Discover the simulated working environment must be used where the range of conditions reflects realistic workplace situations.
  • Reviewing sustainability implications, functions and features of fluid, thermodynamic and vacuum devices, machines and systems
  • Identify and evaluate hydrodynamic and thermodynamic principles and techniques, analysis techniques, software and software validation techniques
  • Operate, develop and maintain a computer/controller system/program to fullfill project requirements 
  • Report and document results of scoping, principles and techniques identification, evaluation of applications, calculations, component and system layouts, and functional diagrams


Dates in 2021:

Semester 1 workshop and lectures: Thursdays weekly 5pm to 8pm, from 4 February to Tuesday 24 June 2021

Requirements of the course

This course requires both on-campus practical and theory classes; and connectivity to learning management systems for self-paced study.
