Thermodynamics (MEAM 2030 / MEAM 203) - Required for MEAM majors

MEAM 203

There is no escaping thermodynamics. Thermodynamics has to do with energy conversion, power production, propulsion, material synthesis, climate control, and much, much more.   In this introductory course, we will convert ocean energy into electricity, access the benefits of geothermal energy, design aircraft engines without any moving parts, and self assemble nano objects.  And, most of all, we will learn the fundamentals of macroscopic thermodynamics.
