Scope and Contents of the Materials

Annual reports of the Dean and Assistant Dean of the College of Engineering, the Director of the Engineering Experiment Station, and the Heads of Departments (1903-1971, 1987, 1988), include correspondence relating to educational developments and requests for laboratory space; the activities of committees and student societies; freshman convocations; college financial requests and expenditures; the growth and development of library resources for the college; faculty publications and research initiatives; research and public service programs; institutional relationships; academic procedures; data on student attendance and placement, especially national and international enrollment statistics of students by department; and the activities of the Engineering Experiment Station, including new patents, the statuses of research investigations, and publications. Annual reports of the Heads of Departments are organized by department, and outline the activities of faculty and staff, such as publications, committees and professional society involvement, staff meetings, and instructional load, as well as the activities of undergraduate and graduate students (e.g. theses completed and annual inspection trips to manufacturing plants in Illinois and Wisconsin), statistics on student enrollment, and relationships with industry.

Biographical Note

Organized when the University opened in 1868 and formed as a college in March, 1873, the College of Engineering operates an experiment station, twelve departments, and a graduate program.

The duties of the Dean of the College of Engineering have evolved from being chairman at faculty meetings to being chief administrator for and representative of the College within the University system.1 In this capacity as chief administrator, the Dean has the power to create positions and offices under his direct control in order to meet his obligations to both faculty and students.2

The Measurement Program was created in 1948.3 It is a branch of the Engineering Experiment Station, which was founded in 1909 and placed under the control of the Dean of the College.4 It functions as a service group for the entire campus by calibrating and repairing optical and electrical laboratory equipment used for experimentation or instruction.5

Student Placement is an office providing information and assistance to graduating students seeking employment.6 This office developed as a result of the University's policy of leaving employment counseling to the deans of the colleges.7 Its budget and staff are incorporated into the general administrative allocations of the College.8

The Bioengineering office was created in 1973 when the Urbana-Champaign Senate approved a recommendation from the College of Engineering for the establishment of a bioengineering option. Because students in any of the engineering curricula are eligible to participate in this option, this office was placed under the control of the Dean of the College.9
