3 Felgar Hall - Engineering queen’s coronation, circa 1930 A Historical Perspective –

4 1904 – Mechanical Engineering/department within the School of Applied Science 1909 – The School of Applied Science became the College of Engineering. James H. Felgar was appointed Dean of the College and Director of the new School of Mechanical Engineering. 1929 – Aeronautical engineering became an option within the Mechanical Engineering degree plan. 1951 – School of Aeronautical Engineering was formed. 1963 – AE and ME merged into the School of Aerospace and Mechanical Engineering 1907 – President Theodore Roosevelt proclaimed Oklahoma the 46 th state. 1917 – U.S. entered World War I; war production stimulated the economy and the country “roared” into the 1920s. 1929 – The Stock Market crashed and the Great Depression lasted through the 1930s. 1957 – The Soviet Union launched Sputnik and the great space race began. 1969 – Neil Armstrong took “one small step for man, one giant leap for mankind”.

44 Imagination is the beginning of creation. – George Bernard Shaw Early mechanical engineers were people who invented and designed mechanisms powered by humans, animals, water, and wind. In the late 18 th century, the Industrial Revolution was powered by the mechanical invention of the steam engine.
