Engineering Thermodynamics

By Prof. Jayant K. Singh   |   IIT Kanpur
Learners enrolled: 201
This course provides an introduction to the most powerful engineering principles -Thermodynamics: the science of energy and its transformation from one form to another form. The subject is widely applicable in several branches of engineering and science. The objective of this course is to introduce systematic different tools needed to analyze energy systems from various daily lives to large scale engineering applications. More specifically, we will cover the topics of mass and energy conservation principles; first law analysis of closed and open systems; understanding second law of thermodynamics and entropy; exergy; properties of pure substances; power generation and refrigeration on thermodynamic cycles; thermodynamic relation, combustion and reaction.

INTENDED AUDIENCE : BE
PREREQUISITES : An introductory background in chemistry, physics and Maths (calculus) will be needed. Thus, the course is ideal for first or second year engineering students.

The online registration form has to be filled and the certification exam fee needs to be paid. More details will be made available when the exam registration form is published. If there are any changes, it will be mentioned then.
Please check the form for more details on the cities where the exams will be held, the conditions you agree to when you fill the form etc.

CRITERIA TO GET A CERTIFICATE

Average assignment score = 25% of average of best 6 assignments out of the total 8 assignments given in the course.
Exam score = 75% of the proctored certification exam score out of 100

Final score = Average assignment score + Exam score

YOU WILL BE ELIGIBLE FOR A CERTIFICATE ONLY IF AVERAGE ASSIGNMENT SCORE >=10/25 AND EXAM SCORE >= 30/75. If one of the 2 criteria is not met, you will not get the certificate even if the Final score >= 40/100.

Certificate will have your name, photograph and the score in the final exam with the breakup.It will have the logos of NPTEL and IIT Kanpur .It will be e-verifiable at nptel.ac.in/noc.

Only the e-certificate will be made available. Hard copies will not be dispatched.

Once again, thanks for your interest in our online courses and certification. Happy learning.
