About the Event

ESM Centennial

The Department of Engineering Science and Mechanics commemorated its 100th birthday, June 1-2, 2006.

The schedule of events included a picnic, recognition dinner, tours, speakers, and other special events. The Engineering Science and Mechanics faculty (past and present) and students were able to reconnect with each other through a series of talks, social events and informal gatherings.

Candid photos and portraits from the event are available online.

A booklet of our Centennial Fellows is available for download.

Factoid:
Upon Professor Charles E. Paul's resignation in 1908, Paul B. Breneman was invited to head up the new Department of Engineering Mechanics and Materials of Construction--a post he held until his retirement in 1938.

His research interests were in the strength of screw threads, strength of timber, and heat treatment of steel.
