OENOLOGY 7540WT - Engineering for Viticulture & Oenology

Waite Campus - Semester 2 - 2015

This course aims to provide students with an overview of engineering concepts and applications used in viticulture and wine production. Topics covered within viticulture include irrigation system design, vineyard automation and emerging technologies. Engineering topics related to wine production include: winery design, mass and energy balances, fluid and heat transfer systems, solid separation processes, refrigeration and instrumentation. Practical sessions provide students with an opportunity to apply engineering principles to vineyard and winery operations. Application of experimental design methodologies and engineering process economics is also addressed.
