COURSE NUMBER: MFRG250
COURSE TITLE:Pneumatic Diagnosis and Repair
DIVISION:Technology
IAI CODE(S):
SEMESTER CREDIT HOURS:4.0
DELIVERY MODE:

COURSE DESCRIPTION:
This course will provide the student a comprehensive exposure to the pneumatic system and components utilized on typical industrial machinery.  Emphasis will be placed on the understanding of pneumatic schematics, location and testing of pneumatic components, and the overall analysis of the pneumatic system.  Students will get extensive instruction on the removal and installation of pneumatic components following proper safety procedures.  Hands-on experience with the use of pneumatic testing equipment in concert with machine specifications and blueprints will be a large portion of this class.  Heavy emphasis will be placed on diagnostic and troubleshooting skills utilized throughout the disassembly and reassembly of the pneumatic system.
PREREQUISITES:
MFRG110 or MATT133
NOTES:

COURSE OBJECTIVES / GOALS:
