AST 3211: Engines and Powers
This eight-week AGED course is designed for students to take in their final semester before student teaching begins. The course covers engines, structures, and electricity curriculum that aids in student preparation for their student teaching experience.
What We'll Cover
In this class, students are provided with a hands-on opportunity to explore the theory of operation for small gas internal combustion engines through a systems approach. This is achieved through diagnostics, operations, maintenance, and performance checks on small gas engines used for agricultural applications.
Students will learn to:
- Understand the theory of operation for a small gas four-cycle engine.
- Understand the theory of operation for a small gas two-cycle engine.
- Diagnose and correct common problems with a small gas four-cycle engine using a systematic approach.
- Disassemble and reassemble a small gas four-cycle engine.
