BCIT is planning for a substantial return to on-campus activity for the fall 2021 term as informed by BC Public Health Officer guidelines. Refer to each course listing for details.
Introduces the principles of hydraulic control and power transmission. Hydraulic components, their schematic symbols, function and construction are examined and used in hands-on practical exercises. The course delivery combines practical exercises with discussions of typical industrial applications and lectures.
General technical knowledge and basic Physics.
