The diversity of heat transfer applications is the basis for the preparation of this complementary course of 3 credits on a semester basis in undergraduate level. The heat transfer with phase change, radiations, heat exchanger brief description with F-LMTD and NTU methods are among the common topics with the mechanical engineering curriculum and available in many textbooks. Indeed, the heat transfer in agitated vessels and heat transfer in fired heaters are specific to chemical engineers. For these two topics attention is paid to the unsteady heating cooling in jacketed and coiled vessels, radiative heat transfer, convective boiling and two phase flow pressure drop in pipes. The time schedule and the quiz-final exam arrangements are described
