At PMI, as part of our Electro-Mechanical Technology coursework, the Fluid Power Technology course covers pneumatics and hydraulic systems to help prepare students for careers in the world of mechanics and automation.
Success in these fields requires a combined knowledge of powered and motorized technology coupled with the knowledge of the electrical/electronic circuits that automatically run the machines. This course is designed to focus on the hydraulics and pneumatics knowledge and experience that is crucial for those seeking a career in the mechanical, automation, or motorized fields.
Fluid Power Technology Course
This course, with 96 hours of curriculum, covers the aspects of pneumatics and hydraulics through theory, math, and lab experiences. This comprehensive approach covers the principals of fluid technology. Students will develop valuable skills for the workforce before they graduate through hands-on training and industry-focused coursework.
This course focuses on areas such as the basic principles of fluid science, circuit design, applications, and component operation as well as on hydraulic and pneumatic components training.
The hydraulic components training includes, but is not limited to:
- Flow control valves
- Pressure control valves
- Pressure-compensated flow control valves
The pneumatic components training includes, but is not limited to:
- Pressure regulators
- Directional control valves
This course also includes lab experiences where students will focus on hydraulic and pneumatic systems, including how to operate the systems and how to repair them. This hands-on experience gives students at PMI an advantage by allowing them to enter the workforce with understanding and familiarity with commonly used, industry-leading machines and technology.
The hands-on pneumatics and hydraulic systems training will help prepare you for the responsibilities that come with a job in the electro-mechanical technology field. Students will be trained to perform job duties such as maintaining, calibrating, and troubleshooting.
As part of the Fluid Technology Course, students will train with automated and electro-mechanical equipment first-hand. PMI’s Electro-Mechanical Technology program can prepare you to work with the technology commonly used in the manufacturing and production industries.
Students can also use these skills to work on the oil rigs, allowing for a wide range of career opportunities upon graduation. Contact PMI today to learn more about the Fluid Power Technology Course and the other courses offered as part of our Electro-Mechanical Technology Program.
