The concepts of hydraulics and pneumatics are important and indispensable tools being used in the innovations, circuit design and improvement of engineering processes and devices. Different types of power sources, valves and actuators are essential elements in all the manufacturing industries, specially where automation and control is required. This course is designed to develop underpinning knowledge of hydraulic and pneumatic systems which are widely used for control and other purposes in machine tools, material handling, automobile, marine, elevators, mining, metal processing equipment and other fields. This course also enables the diploma students to operate and troubleshoot different types of hydraulic and pneumatic systems in industries.
Course Outcome
The theory should be taught and practical should be carried out in such a manner that students are able to acquire required learning outcomes in cognitive, psychomotor and affective domain to demonstrate following course outcomes:

i. Differentiate hydraulic and pneumatic fluid based systems.
ii. Select and operate various hydraulic and pneumatic elements.
iii. Operate and maintain hydraulic and pneumatic circuits.
iv. Operate and maintain various hydraulic and pneumatic devices.
v. Troubleshoot various hydraulic and pneumatic installations.
vi. Operate and maintain hydro-pneumatics circuit diagrams for given applications.
