Hydraulics & Pneumatics

Course Code: ETM2315C

Credit Hours: 3

Effective beginning: Spring 2021

 

Course Description:
This course treats principles of fluid and airflow, the basic components of hydraulic and pneumatic systems and how they are combined and function in instrumentation. Experience will include demonstration and setting up various hydraulic and pneumatic circuits and how they respond to pressure, heat, flow and restriction. This course is one of four courses that lead to a Pneumatics, Hydraulics and Motors state certification.
