Know English at a medium level
Hydraulics 101 (my course) would be preferable
This course is made for mechanical engineering students and anyone who has problems grasping the reading and understanding of the hydraulic circuit diagrams. At first they can seem complicated and entangled but when you approach them studiously and slowly you see that they are pretty intuitive and simple. In the course you will learn how to read and analyze some basic hydraulic circuits as well as do some hydraulic circuit problems and calculations. At the end of the course there is a short lesson on the Bosch Scheme Editor, a free program for your computer on which you can edit and make your own hydraulic circuits. This is a course that goes along side my first course Hydraulics 101, so if you are not familiar with the basics of hydraulic machines I recommend that you take that course first.
After every lecture there is a quiz so you can recapitulate on your knowledge.
There are 3 sections, the first section is an introduction to hydraulic circuit diagrams, the second section is the part where we will do hydraulic calculations and solve hydraulic problems and the last section is a bonus for people who want to draw their own hydraulic circuit diagrams.
Who this course is for:
Mechanical engineering students
People that work with heavy equipment
People interested in hydraulics
3 sections • 22 lectures • 4h 48m total length

Mechanical Engineering major from Novi Sad Serbia. I specialized in motor vehicles and internal combustion engines. I am also a multi-instrumentalist with a finished music school. Mechanical engineering was always something interesting, since I was a kid.
I have some experience teaching English online as well as tutoring math to high school students.
