The College of Engineering began with a small Department of Agricultural Engineering within the College of Agriculture in 1910. Civil Engineering classes were taught within the College of Arts and Science in 1912; a School of Engineering was established within the College one year later. The School "closed for the duration" in 1916 when the professor and all six students enlisted for war service. The School reopened in 1920 and obtained College status the following year. The Department of Agricultural Engineering became part of the College in 1924. In addition to offering a 4-year professional degree (Bachelor of Engineering), the College offers a graduate program and operates joint programs with several other departments. The following individuals have served as Dean: C.J. Mackenzie (1921-1943); R.A. Spencer [Acting] (1943-1944); R.A. Spencer (1944-1953); I.M. Fraser (1953-1958); A. Porter (1958-1961); J.B. Mawdsley (1961-1963); A.B. Booth (1963-1972); W.R. Staples [Acting] (1972-1974); P. Nikiforuk (1974- ).
