Fluid Power Education in Agricultural Engineering Curricula 810944

Based on a survey he conducted, the author learned that the subject matter of hydraulics (such as is used in mobile equipment) is being taught in the Agricultural Engineering Departments of some universities in the United States, but the level of instruction, however, is not uniform among the various universities.
The author suggests that instruction in hydraulics be (1) extended available to all universities and (2) that since virtually all mobile machinery made today is equipped with some hydraulics, that a course in this technology be required of all Agricultural Engineering students who elect the Power & Machinery option.
