National Thermal Engineer Day celebrated on 24 July: Read to know more

National Thermal Engineer Day is celebrated on July 24 to appreciate the contribution of thermal engineers in everyday life. This day is celebrated to recognize the hard work and dedication of those in thermal engineering. The day commemorates the importance of thermal management in the electronics industry and the engineers and companies that make it possible. Irrespective of the market sector without the contributions of thermal engineers, the electronics that are an integral part of today’s life and the cornerstone of our nation’s technological advancement would not be possible.

What is Thermal Engineering?

Thermal engineering is important to the design of almost any machine. Thermal engineering deals with the research, design, and modeling of heat transfer equipment and processes. Some areas a thermal engineer may specialise in include solar heating, boiler design, or HVAC. As a thermal engineer, one maintains, creates, or repairs mechanical systems that involve a heat transfer process into other forms of energy.

The thermal engineer analyzes how mechanical heat sources interact with different physical and industrial systems. A thermal engineer must also understand the economics of the components that they will be servicing or iterating with.

Some of the area thermal engineers can work:

  • Heating, Ventilation and Air conditioning systems
  • Renewable energy systems
  • Military and defence equipment
  • Electronics and electrical component and systems
  • Aerospace components
  • Boiler, heat exchanger and pump design

Common industries that employ thermal engineers include power, automotive, commercial construction companies, heating ventilation and cooling industry.

History of the National Thermal Engineer Day:

National Thermal Engineer Day was founded in July 2014 by Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. Advanced Thermal Solutions, Inc. (ATS) believes in the importance of advancing the thermal engineering industry and is committed to providing the electronics industry with innovative, high-quality, and cost-effective thermal management and electronics packaging solutions.

According to ATS, thermal engineers’ work is overshadowed by the electronics and software sector but in reality, thermal engineers are enabling electronics to function. So, ATS decided to start the National Thermal Engineer Day on July 24. They selected July 24 because it is the hottest day of the year which is more perfect for thermal engineers to celebrate. Thermal engineers deal with heat energy and its transfer between different mediums and also used in other forms of energy. The electronics we use every day will not work without thermal engineering.
