Historical Note

The Engineering College was founded in 1907 as the Engineering Division to teach mechanics as it related to agriculture. As the division expanded, an attempt was made (1916) to move the engineering division to Ann Arbor. With the financial backing of R. E. Olds, an engineering building was constructed, and all attempts to move the division collapsed. In 1944 the name was changed to the Engineering school, and in 1955 was renamed again as the Engineering College.
