    The goalThe goal of this course is introduction with basic mechanisms of heat transfer as well as the studying of heat transfer in different geometries, methods of thermohydraulic calculations and performances of heat exchangers.
    The outcomeStudents are expected to gain knowledge which would allow them to select, specify and do the thermohydraulic calculations for the most of the commonly used heat exchangers in the industry.
