1 Fluid transport systems. 2 Fire protection systems. 3 HVAC systems. 4 Noise pollution in industrial facilities. 5 Energy saving and efficiency. 6 Energy audits.
Learning activities and methodology
Learning activities will include: - Master classes, where the knowledge that students must acquire will be presented. To facilitate their development, students will receive class notes and will have basic reference texts to follow the classes and develop further work. - Resolution of exercises by the student that will serve as a self-assessment and will permit to acquire the necessary skills. - Problems classes, in which the problems proposed to the students are developed and discussed.
