College Of Engineering To Celebrate 125th Anniversary Starting November 12

Penn State’s College of Engineering will begin a yearlong celebration of its 125th anniversary next month with a celebration titled “Engineering 125, Building Toward the Future.”

The virtual event will take place at 1:25 p.m. on November 12. Justin Schwartz, the Harold and Inge Marcus Dean of Engineering, will host the “fast-moving virtual event recognizing the powerful legacy” of the college and its future.

“Across the nearly 125 years since that monumental decision, engineering-driven advancements have shaped and reshaped the world,” Schwartz said. “Today, as a global leader in engineering education and research, the College of Engineering is engaged with the deeply important work of helping solve humanity’s greatest challenges.”

The college was established as the School of Engineering in January 1896 with just 143 students enrolled. Now, the College of Engineering enrolls more than 12,000 undergraduate students.

Penn State’s engineering faculty have collaborated on projects ranging from advanced electron microscopy to cancer research.

“The Penn State College of Engineering has always and continues to place education, research and the space to accomplish these things as critically important to our mission,” Schwartz said. “We owe our position today to a legacy of progress over 125 years.”
