VACT 2293 Vacuum Analysis and Troubleshooting

This course addresses advanced concepts related to the construction, operation, maintenance, and repair of vacuum-based systems technologies. An understanding of how materials, mechanical systems, and electrical sub-systems interact in a working vacuum system based on operating requirements is developed. Students work with a model vacuum system to complete a variety of lab activities intended to help them understand vacuum system operation and then simulate classic system problems and solutions.
