Collection Overview
Table of contents What's This?
Record Series 52 contains reports, committee minutes, and correspondence pertaining to the operation of the College of Engineering at UCLA. Predominant subjects include activities of faculty, curriculum design, departmental organization including a master plan study, annual commencement program and dinner, and business of the Engineers Council for Professional Development.
The College of Engineering at UCLA traces its beginning to a two-year program of instruction instituted in 1919 when the Los Angeles State Normal School was incorporated into the University of California. Students wanting to go beyond this two-year program had to transfer to the Berkeley campus or to other universities until 1941 when the Regents authorized full instruction in engineering on the Los Angeles campus.
