Additionally, a few years later in 1908, the following statement began to appear
regularly in the description of courses in English taught by Dr. Michel:
The Faculty has adopted the following regulation concerning English work:
Students’ papers of all kinds shall be
scrutinized for English.
Students are trained to express their ideas in clear, forcible language adapted to professional needs.
Great stress is laid upon the correction of errors in the student’s own writing, development of style being sought largely by
means of individual criticism.
Civil Engineering.
Distinct from courses in chemical, electrical, and mechanical engineering,
this course included railway, structural, municipal, mining, and geodetic engineering.
Railway engineering located a railway line, cross-sectioned it, and staked it out in detail
with complete maps and profiles, computations of earthwork and costs. Structural engineering
included courses in bridges and roofs, structural design, building construction, masonry, and
foundations. Municipal engineering comprised water analysis, hydraulics, water works, sewer
construction, sanitary science, road and street pavements, and city surveying.
Mining engineering embraced geology, mineralogy, mining methods and surveys, and
assaying. Geodetic engineering included especially hydrographic surveying and geodesy, fitted
graduates to take positions in the United States Coast, Geodetic, and Lake Surveys.
