This 15-hour multidisciplinary minor prepares students from various science and engineering majors for careers that require a background in friction, wear and lubrication (tribology). Students will be prepared for not only the lubricant and bearing manufacturing industry, but for design and maintenance in the power generation, vehicle, and manufacturing industries. Students who complete this minor will acquire the skills necessary to identify critical parameters in a tribological system, design a tribological system for the needs of a specific application, including geometry, lubricant, and surface properties. Students will also understand the chemical formulation and operating mechanisms of lubricants and additives.
