Event description

Description

NEATEC presents a FREE, two-day workshop on Pneumatic Technology. This 2-day hands-on training will provide an introduction to pneumatic technology used in industrial systems including mechatronic systems. Students will assemble and operate basic pneumatic systems and learn the basics of pneumatic circuit design, assembly and testing. Students will also learn basic skills and approaches for pneumatic system troubleshooting. This workshop is offered at SUNY Polytechnic’s Albany campus.

For 2-year and/or 4-year college students with a background or interest in math, engineering, or technology.



Attendees will be provided electronic copies of all workshop materials.
