Experimental education imparted at universities is essential for students to confirm their theoretical knowledge. Experiments, in general, can deal with real-world data that theory or simulation cannot handle. However, there are experimental subjects where it is difficult to obtain results according to the theory. Among them, heat conduction is a subject wherein it is difficult to obtain theoretical results because it is difficult to establish an experimental environment. Therefore, it is highly important to design experimental content using students’ perspectives, such as theory and practical experiments. Therefore, this study investigates the impact of education on the design and application of experimental apparatus for a heat-transfer experiment, which is a part of an experiment conducted by the Department of Mechanical Engineering, Tokyo University of Technology. Furthermore, we discuss the effectiveness of the proposed experimental system based on students’ behavior, comprehension, satisfaction, and subsequent results.
