Requisite(s): (68201 Physics in Action OR 68037 Physical Modelling) AND (33290c Statistics and Mathematics for Science OR 33230 Mathematical Modelling 2)
The lower case 'c' after the subject code indicates that the subject is a corequisite. See definitions for details.
This subject explores the physics and thermodynamics of energy systems, both in theory as well as in an authentic application of scientific work. It builds on the thermodynamics studied in introductory level subjects, and develops an understanding of the physics and thermodynamics underlying conventional and renewable energy systems. It expands on scientific reporting skills acquired in introductory level subjects and leads to the production of an energy science and technology-related scientific publication. The subject builds problem-solving skills in practical applications of energy science. Energy systems and related issues are explored in lecture and tutorial workshops and project-based group work. Students develop teamwork skills by completing a real-world assignment in an authentic research setting.
