Course specification
Course title Hydraulic and Pneumatic Systems
Acronym 13E053HPS
Study programme Electrical Engineering and Computing
Type of study bachelor academic studies
Lecturer (for classes)
Lecturer/Associate (for practice)
Lecturer/Associate (for OTC)
ESPB 6.0 Status elective
The goal Introduce students to the basic notions and concepts of hydraulic and pneumatic systems. Students will understand how these systems work, and what their advantages and disadvantages are.
