PHYSICS FOR CIVIL ENGINEERING

 LPTC

3003

OBJECTIVES:
• To introduce the basics of heat transfer through different materials, thermal performance of building and various thermal applications
• To impart knowledge on the ventilation and air conditioning of buildings
• To introduce the concepts of sound insulation and lighting designs
• To give an introduction to the processing and applications of new engineering materials
• To create an awareness on natural disasters and safety measures

We're excited to announce the launch of our new website! Visit NameWheelSpinner.com to explore its features and benefits.
