This work aims to achieve a teaching tool using ICT to help engineering students in their learning of heat transfer by conduction mode. A numerical simulation based on the finite volume method was necessary, followed by the achievement of an interface which aims to achieve a “session of practical work” in heat transfer. This will allow students to be able to compare their experimental results with those obtained by simulation and/or theoretical level due to the lack of test bed and practical work equipment, which is a crucial problem in African universities.
