Heat transfer is a process whereby thermal energy is transferred in response to a temperature difference. There are three modes of heat transfer: conduction, convection, and radiation. When there is a species concentration difference in a multicomponent mixture, mass transfer occurs. There are two modes of mass transfer: diffusion and convection.

Basics, integral formulation, differential formulation, jump conditions, and averaging formulation.
Fundamentals of Heat Conduction, steady state heat conduction, unsteady state heat conduction, numerical solution of heat conduction, melting and solidification and microscale heat conduction.
External forced convection, internal forced convection, natural convection, condensation, evaporation, boiling, and two-phase flow.
Basics, mass diffusion, and convective mass transfer.
Basics, black body, real surface, configuration factor, enclosure, participating media and solar radiation.
Transport phenomena in micro- and nanoscales, microscale heat conduction, ultrafast nonequilibrium phase change, forced convection in microchannel, and micro- and nanoscale radiation.
Basics, discretization methods, conduction/diffusion problems, convection-diffusion problems, solution of flow field, turbulent flow and heat transfer, inverse heat transfer, Finite Element Method (FEM), and Boundary Element Method (BEM).
