After the course the student has general perspective for applying sustainable solutions in design of fluid power systems. The objective of the course is to awaken students for using sustainable solutions in design and to offer basic tools for application of environmentally friendly hydraulic fluids, energy efficient solutions, system life cycle management, leakage management, noise control and safe design solutions.

Evaluation is made according to written final exam. When the student has adopted the core content well, it is possible to get grade 3. To reach grade 4 the student must also adopt complementary knowledge issues. The get grade 5 the student must also adopt specialist knowledge issues. If there is minor shortages is core content, the studen has possibility get grade 1 or 2. If there are major shortages is core content, the student will not pass the course.


Numerical evaluation scale (0-5)
