Biographical/Historical note

In 1953 President Ernest L. Wilkinson created the new College of Physical and Engineering Science and appointed Dr. Harvey Fletcher as the first Dean. The new college housed departments from the College of Arts and Sciences and College of Engineering Sciences. The college grew in enrollment and soon departments in the college had their own colleges made. President Dallin H. Oaks saw the advantages in having Technology and Industrial Education align with Engineering Sciences. In 1972 President Oaks announced the creation of the College of Engineering Sciences and Technology. The college has five departments which are; Department of Chemical Engineering, Department of Civil and Environmental Engineering, Department of Electrical and Computer Engineering, Department of Mechanical Engineering, and School of Technology.
