Administrative History

The Chemical Engineering Department was organized within the Chemistry Department in the fall of 1954. At the same time, Civil, Electrical, and Mechanical Departments were also formed but as separate departments, each with its own department chairman. All four departments offered a five-year degree in bachelor of engineering science. The departments were organized within the existing college of physical sciences and the college name was changed to the College of Physical and Engineering Sciences. The Department of Chemical Engineering was removed from under the control of the Department of Chemistry and became a separate department in the fall of 1958. In 1972 the College of Physical and Engineering Sciences was divided and the engineering programs became a part of the new College of Engineering Sciences and Technology.
