IND 116 - Pneumatic & Hydraulic Systems

Last Date of Approval: Spring 2021

2 Credits
Total Lecture Hours: 15
Total Lab Hours: 30
Course Description:
This course will cover the basic principles and hands-on applications of pneumatic and hydraulic systems. Students will learn how to read, interpret, and construct fluid systems schematic diagrams containing pneumatic and hydraulic component symbols. These skills are valuable in the manufacturing environment. There are several of these systems used in automation controls in industry. Critical thinking skill learned here will help the student in their future lives.
