VACT 2293 Vacuum Analysis and Trouble Shooting (4 cr)

Prereq: VACT 1292 or NANO 1292; ENGT 1153 or concurrent enrollment; ENGT 1184 or concurrent enrollment; CHEM 1020 (B or higher) or CHEM 1061; PHYS 1110 or concurrent enrollment

This course addresses advanced concepts related to the construction, operation, maintenance, and repair of vacuum-based systems technologies. An understanding of how materials, mechanical systems, and electrical sub-systems interact in a working vacuum system based on operating requirements is developed. Students work with a model vacuum system to complete a variety of lab activities intended to help them understand vacuum system operation and then simulate classic system problems and solutions.
