Of the remarkable advances that have been made in refrigeration in recent years, none has been more significant that the design, development and manufacturing of tone of thousands of refrigeration domestic machines. Rapid progress has also been made in the industrial applications of refrigeration for air conditioning. In this period a clearer conception of the phenomenon of heat transfer and flow has been developed. In the field of refrigeration with such broad application an ambitious man can establish his own repair and servicing business and operate independently. The purpose of this course is to equip the students with the knowledge and skills in refrigeration to accomplish his goals as an expert in this field.
