Shortly after Clarkson opened, it added the degree in Domestic
Engineering to go into effect in September 1902. This four-year course leading to a
baccalaureate degree aimed to prepare women to teach the technical branches of Home
Economics as well as the efficient management and supervision of the home. It paralleled the
regular engineering courses by including instruction on the vocations within women's sphere
just as the engineering courses included instruction in the professions of men. Students enrolled
in the same engineering course work except that home economics was substituted for shop
work and surveying.
The last two years of specialized instruction involved considerable work with the
engineering students. Each senior in the course was required to conduct 20 exercises in student
teaching- in cooking and 10 in sewing.
