(Not required for any major.)
Catalog Data:

ENGRMAE 217 Generalized Thermodynamics (Credit Units: 4) Generalized thermodynamics develops the laws of continuum thermodynamics from a set of plausible and intuitive postulates. The postulates are motivated qualitatively by a statistical description of matter and are justified by a posterior success for the resulting theory. Prerequisite: MAE91 or MAE115.
