8maller Than One Year
Tho work in this department prop
erly falls under four distinct divisions
but whloh nro more or Iosb closely
nBBocIntod: First, gonoral mechanical
or engineering drawing, which toach
ob tho rudlraonta of drawing and tho
laws of orthographic projection (de
Bcrlptivo geometry); second, theoreti
cal mechnnicB, which Ib a mathemat
ical troatmont of motion and tho
forceu nnd masBos which in my way
affect tho state of motion; third, up
pllod mechanics, which applies tho
principles and laws of theoretical mo
chnnicB to tho solution of probloms
'pertaining to olastic bodioB, such as
utrenglh of materials, streBB In beams,
etc.; fourth, mechanism and macltlno
doBlgn, which applies tho principles
of drawing nnd mechanics to tho plpb
lcms of tho motionB and strengths
of tho variouB parts of machines.
Very Large Department.
In point of numbers this dopart
mont is ono of tho largoBt on the
cnmpuB, registering during tho first
BemoBtors of tho past four yoars as
follows: 1905-6, 396 ; 190G-7, 464;
1907-8, 477; 1908-9, 451. The reduc
tion this year Is traceable directly to
the panic; engineering always being
ono of the first professions affected by
a panic. Tho importance of tho sub
ject mattor of tho department may
be host measured by tho fact that
practically all of tho work is pre
requisite to tho future advancement
of tho engineer.
