Off-Road Equipment Minor

University Park, College of Agricultural Sciences (OFFRD)

This interdisciplinary minor complements several engineering, agricultural, and mining degrees, helping students understand some specific technological aspects of mobile equipment (from lawn tractors to large excavators). The minor would strengthen the program for students with machinery interests by exposing them to several of the technical aspects of off-road equipment such as electronics, power generation, power transmission, traction, ergonomics, and safety.

The minor in Off-Road Equipment requires 18-20 credits from the approved courses. Courses in the minor have prerequisites including calculus, physics, and, depending on the student's major, at least one engineering or engineering technology type course (e.g., BRS 221). These courses should be completed prior to entering the minor.

A grade of C or better is required for all courses taken to satisfy the minor.
