Learning outcomes of the course unit

Student get base of heating systems in building and design for water-based heating systems. After graduation studnet will be able to determine the thermal output and do standard designs of heating systems having in mind layout and construction of buildings. Students will learn to read drawings boiler and engine rooms. He will be able to design and draw a diagram of the boilers connection up to 500 kW. Student will be able to use this knowledge for complex design of buildings.
