Course content

The course provides a foundation for working with automation and control systems. The candidate must have insight into areas of use and properties, basic theory, system components for energy conversion, control and regulation components, passive components and examination control within hydraulics and pneumatics. The candidate undergoes a core process based on elements such as system behavior, interest analyzes, various goals for system efficiency in relation to user requirements, balancing between different needs, requirements and system analyzes. The candidate is given an introduction to system design and system development, based on systems engineering processes and methods. The candidate understands the necessity of maintenance and how a systematic troubleshooting can be carried out. The course provides a basis for being able to develop teaching adapted groups from levels 8-13, which are linked to relevant curriculum goals.
