Extensive Laboratories
Four years from now, it is safe to
say, the present generation of en-
gineering students will still find
themselves strangers to many lab-
oratories in the College. Few, if any,
engineering schools in the world
possess the equipment and the lab-
oratory facilities which clutter four
buildings on this campus.
Three-storied evaporators in the
East Engineering Building, hyper-
delicate electrical instruments in the
West Engineering Building, automo-
bile and airplane engines in the West
Engineering Annex, are equipment il-
lustrative of the facilities available in
various divisions of the College.
Student Body Increasing t
It is expected that approximatelyt
200 more students will make use oft
these facilities this year than last, in
response to increased demands for1
technically trained men by industry.
Mechanical and chemical engineering
should be even more strongly in-f
trenched as the most important divi-t
sions of the College.s
In preparation for this increased
enrollment, the College, according to
Assistant Dean Alfred Lovell, is re-
viewing its undergraduate courses
and teaching methods, seeking to
improve the coordination and pre-
sentation of the material in the main
fundamental subjects.
A Hearty Welcome to the
