Scope and Content Note

The University Archives Photograph Collection, College of Engineering Photographs, 1915-1993, mainly includes photographs of the faculty, staff, and students of various departments within the College of Engineering. A significant number of photographs documents research studies and laboratory work and equipment. Also included are photographs of award ceremonies, presentations and conferences, campus buildings, and promotional materials.

Historical Note

Engineering classes have been taught since the first semester at North North Carolina College of Agriculture and Mechanic Arts (now North Carolina State University) in 1889. During the next few decades, specialized engineering curricula were developed, and the first engineering departments were formed. In 1923 these were all brought together under the School of Engineering. Subsequent development has resulted in additional departments, centers, and degree programs. During the 1980s the school became the College of Engineering.
