Presentation on theme: "RESOURCES AT UC CS / ECE GSA Presentation. Some resources at UC Research: Engineering Library GSA / GSGA Career: Career Development Center Watch."— Presentation transcript:
Where can you find this at UC? North Side of the Mural Room (Quiet Reading Room), Engr Library
Dean Schneider Inventor of cooperative education Believed that engineers not only need the practical experience (co-op), but also an appreciation of the fine arts, not as something remote and rarefied but as a part of their daily experience. The murals reflect the civil and industrial life in Cincinnati and show its river front, woodlands, bridges and buildings.
Did you know? Fact: In 1920, women were first admitted to the College of Engineering at UC. In January of 1920, when there was a fire in the roof of Baldwin, engineering students carried art works with them as they “marched single-file into the winter air of the quadrangle.”
