Thermal Engineering is a study of energy transport particularly in nanoscale structure to obtain knowledge and understanding of the scientific effects on physical world that can o engineering discoveries in industrial energy applications. The thermal engineering is heat transfer, thermodynamics, energy conversion, and HVAC applications.

One or more of the following disciplines may be involved in solving a particular thermal engineering problem:

Thermal engineering may be practiced by mechanical engineers and chemical engineers.

One branch of knowledge used frequently in thermal engineering is that of thermofluids.

Applications[edit]
