This unit introduces you to key concepts and principles required to analyse problems involving heat exchange and energy conversion. You will analyse and design heat exchangers and analyse the performance of compressors, internal combustion engines, gas turbines and jet propulsion. You will analyse combustion processes and estimate pollutant emissions, and analyse and design nozzles to promote safe and efficient combustion. You will prepare professional documents that demonstrate critical evaluation of results. You will be required to show your ability to work productively to solve problems, and document and communicate your work clearly in a professional manner. On-campus students will be required to attend laboratory sessions to promote development of unit learning outcomes. Mixed Mode (online) students will be required to attend a residential school to attend laboratory sessions and an in-class test to promote development of unit learning outcomes.

Important note: Students enrolled in a subsequent unit who failed their pre-requisite unit, should drop the subsequent unit before the census date or within 10 working days of Fail grade notification. Students who do not drop the unit in this timeframe cannot later drop the unit without academic and financial liability. See details in the Assessment Policy and Procedure (Higher Education Coursework).

All on-campus students are expected to attend scheduled classes – in some units, these classes are identified as a mandatory (pass/fail) component and attendance is compulsory. International students, on a student visa, must maintain a full time study load and meet both attendance and academic progress requirements in each study period (satisfactory attendance for International students is defined as maintaining at least an 80% attendance record).
Each 6-credit Undergraduate unit at CQUniversity requires an overall time commitment of an average of 12.5 hours of study per week, making a total of 150 hours for the unit.

This is a graded unit: your overall grade will be calculated from the marks or grades for each assessment task, based on the relative weightings shown in the table above. You must obtain an overall mark for the unit of at least 50%, or an overall grade of ‘pass’ in order to pass the unit. If any ‘pass/fail’ tasks are shown in the table above they must also be completed successfully (‘pass’ grade). You must also meet any minimum mark requirements specified for a particular assessment task, as detailed in the ‘assessment task’ section (note that in some instances, the minimum mark for a task may be greater than 50%).
