Transcript DR. F. M. TILLER, Dean, College of Engineering. Among significant events of 1958-59 in the Cullen College of Engineering is the inauguration of a doctoral program in Chemical Engineering to begin in September, 1959. A $48,000 Nuclear Logging Facility, financed by the American Petroleum Institute, is being constructed on the northeast side of the campus with Prof. C. V. Kirkpatrick, chairman of petroleum engineering, as director of the project. Also, construction of an experimental oil well was made possible by contributions from the local oil industry. Faculty members Frederic A. Wierum and Harold Overton were awarded Atomic Energy Commission Grants which provided study at the AEC-ASEE Summer Institute on Nuclear Energy at Purdue. Wierum was also awarded a National Science Foundation Science Faculty Fellowship. As a result of his visit to Ecuador during the summer of 1958, Dean F. M. Tiller was made an Honorary Professor at both the Universidad Central in Quito and the University of Guayaquil. He spent six weeks in Ecuador evaluating the science and engineering education programs of the Ecuadorian universities for the Fulbright Commission. Engineering Building 34
