Good course with basic review of Fluid mechanics in pipe flow, hydraulics component and application as well as basics in Simscape. More intensive version of this course would be great

The course is excellent, professors are very didactic and they show several applications and extremely interesting field studies. I learned a lot and I believe everyone who is beginning to study or work with this subject must apply to this fundamental course. I know the time is short, but as a suggestion, I would give a lot more emphasis to the simulation classes (or add a new course only on simulations, it would be fantastic!).

Grate course, well thought out with good examples. Nice balance between industry examples and theoretical knowledge.

Teachers were great and made the subject quite interesting. The accumulator portion will aid me in further understanding the operation of fluid equipment at work. Thanks for this!
