ME 211 Course Policy Fall 2018


Course Objectives:

To teach basic principles of classical thermodynamics; train students to identify, formulate and solve engineering problems in thermodynamics.

Course Outcomes:

-        Gain the ability to use thermodynamic terminology and concepts appropriately.

-        Learn the methods used to analyze energy and mass transfers for steady and transient systems.

-        Understanding of reversible and irreversible process.

-        Learn the methods to apply the concepts of irreversibility, availability and efficiency to various systems.


You should read the assigned section of the textbook before coming to class. There will be problems assigned from the textbook with solutions which are illustrative of the general material and problems found on exams. You are responsible from studying those problems. There will be seven  quizes, two midterms and a comprehensive final exam. 

Assessment Criteria: (May be subject to changes)

Attendance: 5%

7 Quizzes: 25%

Two midterms: 30%

Final exam: 40%
