Transcript College Of Engineering Moves Ahead In Many Areas Academically, as well as physically the College of Engineering was one of the more dynamic colleges on campus. The establishment of a new degree program, the acquisition of research grants, major research projects and a move into a new building aided the success of the college. The emphasis in petroleum engineering was shifted from the BA level to the MA level. The Bachelor of Arts degree in petroleum engineering was eliminated this year. It was included as four optional courses in chemical and mechanical engineering at the undergraduate level. Contracts to support graduate research, investments with NASA, Naval research and the National Science Foundation resulted in a significant increase in the engineering graduate program. Extensive research by faculty was carried out within the college. A major research project begun this year was a Saline Water Study which involved a cheap process for making fresh water from salt water. Drs. Douglas Muster and Harb- hajan Hayre conducted an underwater experiment with acoustics. The information from this project will aid submarines in identifying objects, specifically missiles. In the electrical engi neering department, Dr. Hayre also conducted an electric magnetic wave study. By attempting to define radar vocabulary such as that bounced off the moon; terrain features and other physical features of the moon can be identified by properly interpreting the waves. Late in the spring the engineering college moved into a new building, which houses numerous experimental labs and the faculty and staff offices for every department. Also, a student commons area with reading rooms, a lecture room and a meeting room for student engineering societies is an attractive meeting area for students faculty and professional engineers. The building has an auditorium seating 200 with closed circuit TV's. It is a building that is flexible with some of the most modern and up-to-date labs in the country. However, Dean Charles Kirkpatrick feels that "the building doesn't mean anything unless we have the right kind of people to go with it". Thus, it serves a dual role—one of providing students with all the necessary facilities to do effective work and one of recruiting well qualified professors.
