Faculties and centres
In this subject, students will become familiar with the fluid flow systems and the design and operation of machines to pump liquids and gases.
This course will provide the students basic skills to be used in other courses that make significant use of fluid mechanics as it will allow them to understand and address any practical fluid dynamics problem.
The students must have previous knowledge of mathematics and physics.
