  A five-year course combining agriculture with either civil, electrical,
or mechanical
engineering is organized for the training of agricultural engineers. The
complete cur-
riculum for civil, electrical, or mechanical engineering as combined with
agriculture
may be obtained from the departmental office. Upon completion of four years
of re-
quired work, including 45 credits in agriculture (50 credits required of
students who
entered college before September 1, 1939), the B.S. (Agriculture) degree
is granted,
with a B.S. degree in civil, electrical, or mechanical engineering after
the fifth year, if
all requirements have been met. Freshman majors in professional agricultural
engin-
eering should consult the chairman of the department before or during the
first semester,
to arrange the proper sequence of courses. Mathematics 51 should be substituted
for
Mathematics 71.
  Students desiring to enter sales, advertising, or service work with industries
selling
agricultural equipment are advised to follow the agricultural equipment industry
major
listed on page 230. Students inclined toward engineering and desiring to
return to their
farms are advised to major in non-technical agricultural engineering. This
major may
be combined with other key subjects in agriculture, to provide thorough training
for
farm operation and management.
