University of Novi Sad Technical faculty "Mihajlo Pupin" Zrenjanin


The aim of the course is to provide students with the basics and current knowledge of the theory and practice of thermal energy . Through the course students will be introduced to Theoretical Foundations and Principles of thermodynamics and its application in thermal engineering - Thermal Engineering. They will also be familiar with the resources, the potential of conventional and special - non -conventional energy sources, energy resources, budget elements and basic dimensioning, design, technology solutions, equipment and significance for future technological development .

Students will be trained in the implementation of the budget balance of thermo - technical and thermal power plants; dimensioning, design, and finding technical solutions; selection of equipment in the field of thermodynamics and energy; teamwork work; communicating the technical terms and an oral presentation.
