2010 August, Finding aid updated to reflect additions to the collection by Cate Putirskis, 2010 August.
Includes correspondence, minutes, reports, memoranda, work plans, and project files dating from 1919 to 2006 and relating to the establishment of the marine science curriculum, the Integrated Manufacturing Engineering Institute, and the Henry M. Shaw Lecture Series in Civil Engineering.
Civil engineering at North Carolina State University began as part of the Mechanics Course, which was first taught in 1889. In 1895 the Mechanics Course separated into civil engineering and mathematics when Wallace Carl Riddick became the first professor of civil engineering. Civil engineering became a separate department in 1906. Civil, mechanical and electrical engineering continued to be housed in the Mechanical building until civil engineering moved to the Horticulture building.
Winston Hall (named for the college's President, George Tayloe Winston) was completed in 1910 to house chemical, civil, and electrical engineering. Around 1917 professor Harry Tucker developed a curriculum in highway engineering to meet the expanding needs of the state's highway system.
The Engineers' Council for Professional Development (ECPD) accredited the civil engineering curriculum in 1937 and renewed the accreditation in 1949.
In 2003, the Department of Civil Engineering became the Department of Civil, Construction, and Environmental Engineering. Currently the department is one of the five largest in the country. It offers undergraduate programs in computer-aided engineering; construction engineering and management; geotechnical/geoenvironmental engineering; structural engineering and mechanics; transportation engineering and materials; and water resources and environmental engineering. The department offers graduate programs in coastal and ocean engineering; computer aided engineering, construction engineering and management; geotechnical/geoenvironmental engineering, public works engineering/administration, structures and mechanics; transportation engineering and materials; and water resources and environmental engineering.
