Engineering History: The Early 20th Century

The UC College of Engineering was first listed as a college in 1900. That was the same year UC added faculty in mechanical engineering, electrical engineering and technical chemistry. The foundation built by the civil engineers was strong enough to support further growth through the early 20th century. Chemical engineering was added in 1902. Evening classes in mechanical engineering began the same year.
