    The goalThe goal of the course is to enable students to think critically and analytically in the light of momentum and heat transport phenomena and fundamental engineering principles as well as to make decisions and choose the appropriate operations and equipment. Introduction to the way of thinking, logic and terminology as well as the sources of information in the area. Introduction to various mechanical and heat transfer operations and a more detailed study of the basic ones.
    The outcomeThe ability to make the calculations of the basic mechanical and heat transfer operations and equipment.
