Mechanical Energy Systems Engineering
This course covers energy systems engineering analysis from a mechanical and materials engineering perspective. This course covers energy production from traditional energy systems that use fossil fuel combustion such as internal combustion engines, coal-fired plants, and natural gas turbines, to nuclear energy and renewable energy methods such as wind, solar, hydraulic, and geothermal. Lastly, the course will survey emerging technologies for future (21st century) energy systems. Students should have taken at a minimum Thermodynamics, Dynamics, and Fluid Dynamics courses. Prerequisites: ENME 2720, ENME 2510, ENME 2651.
