The laws, principles and concepts of hydraulics play very important role in the innovation, development and improvement of engineering processes and devices. Different types of hydraulic elements like pumps, valves and actuators are essential elements in all the manufacturing industries. This course is designed to develop understanding of hydraulic systems which are widely used for operation and controls in machine tools, material handling, automobile, marine, mining, metal processing, equipment and other fields. This course also enables the diploma students to operate and troubleshoot different types of hydraulic systems in industries.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practicals should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire different learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes:

i. Select hydraulic fluid based on given conditions.
ii. Select, operate and maintain various hydraulic elements such as pumps and actuators.
iii. Operate and maintain various hydraulic control valves and accessories.
iv. Design hydraulic circuits by selecting suitable components for a given application.
v. Operate and maintain various hydraulic devices such as hydraulic brake, power steering, jack etc.
vi. Install, maintain, and troubleshoot various hydraulic systems.
