There are hydraulic applications in so many areas. The big selection from which to choose includes mobile hydraulics, motion control, industrial hydraulics and pneumatics. Other very real possibilities are bearings, robotic power transmission and fluid sealing. Your job responsibilities could be in selling, designing or manufacturing components. Or opportunities exist in the hydraulic design engineering of all sorts of systems comprised of pumps, valves, cylinders (including hydraulic cylinder repair), motors, hoses and fittings, manifolds, seals or filtration.
Not only is the fluid power industry challenging and worthwhile, it is also widespread across a tremendous range of fields. There are wonderful opportunities in construction, agriculture, material handling, biomedical, entertainment/simulation, automotive, biomedical, automation, material handling and machine tools. Or you could almost instantly have a responsible position in utilities, packaging machinery, plastics machinery, wood processing, marine and offshore, military and aerospace.
If you are looking for a challenging career in an ever-expanding profession, consider hydraulics. The equipment you will design, produce and repair is essential to keeping our entire nation (and world, for that matter!) going and growing.
