Thermal Engineering is a study of energy transport particularly in nanoscale structure to obtain knowledge and understanding of the scientific effects on physical world that can engineering discoveries in industrial energy applications. The thermal engineering is heat transfer, thermodynamics, energy conversion, and HVAC applications.

One or more of the following disciplines may be involved in solving a particular thermal engineering problem:

Thermal engineering may be practiced by mechanical engineers and chemical engineers.

One branch of knowledge used frequently in thermal engineering is that of thermofluids.
