This intermediate unit teaches students about the mechanical systems on-board maritime infrastructure. Students will apply the knowledge obtained in Thermal Engineering and Introduction to Maritime Science, Engineering and Technology to understand systems including gas compression, refrigeration, liquefaction, internal combustion engines, air conditioning and hydraulics. Hands-on laboratory exercises provide a practical demonstration of real-world systems. This knowledge will be applied in further studies to design various marine engineering systems.

Please check that your computer meets the minimum System Requirements if you are attending via Distance/Off-Campus.
Units are offered in attending mode unless otherwise indicated (that is attendance is required at the campus identified). A unit identified as offered by distance, that is there is no requirement for attendance, is identified with a nominal enrolment campus. A unit offered to both attending students and by distance from the same campus is identified as having both modes of study.
