    Course Description and Objectives
    This course covers the basic theory of heat transfer including three modes: conduction, convection, and radiation. It also deals with the theoretical approach for steady and unsteady conduction problems, and forced and natural convection based on basic transport equation and boundary layer theory. Moreover, the radiation heat transfer is studied briefly.
