Thermodynamics is a branch of science that studies the interactions between different systems and the environment. The key issues include different forms of matter and energy, their flows, and conservation equations, of which the most important one is the first law of thermodynamics: energy cannot be created or destroyed.

The courses on offer at the Laboratory of Thermodynamics deal with basic physical phenomena that can be applied to studying natural and industrial systems.

In fact, the technical thermodynamics and heat transfer courses are the most important basic courses in energy and environmental technology. The Laboratory of Thermodynamics has concentrated on basic research in the energy sector, and applied research especially in the areas of carbon management and energy storages.
