Learning Objectives - Last name/s A-L
The aim of this course is to provide the ability to predict, study, and describe fluid behaviour
cc2: Knowledge and understanding of the relevant laws of physics (mechanics, electromagnetism, thermodynamics) and chemistry in the field of industrial engineering and understanding of the role of these laws in the formulation of representative models of tangible reality.
ca2: Applying knowledge and understanding related to the physical and chemical field to solve mono-disciplinary problems of chemistry, applied chemistry, mechanics, electromagnetism and theoretical thermodynamics as a basis for mechanical engineering problems.

Type of Assessment - Last name/s A-L
Written exercise followed by the oral examination.
The student must solve a brief engineering problem involving the course subjects. The student is then asked to orally answer one or more questions to the end of assessing his/her ability to explain notions of fluid dynamics.
The student must demonstrate his/her ability to discuss the course subjects and to apply methods and notions to the solutions of simplified engineering problems.
