EDITOR'S NOTE: The following ar
ticle is one in a series of articles on the
budget request of the University for the
different departments. The budget will be
brought to the floor of the legislature next
By Priscilla Mullins
Senior Staff Writer
Most of the increase in the Engineer
ing and Architecture College budget in
volves remaining competitive for faculty
and meeting the additional increases in
enrollment facing the College in the next
two years, according to Merk Hobson,
former dean.
Hobson said he was in on planning
the budget before he was named as Dean
of the Graduate College.
The budget calls for 52.120,815, an In
crease of $521,192 over the 1963-65 bien
nium. '
Of the total, $2,093,915 is slated for
salary and instructional purposes. This
represents an increase of $497,797 over
the last biennium.
Hobson said the enrollment now is
-approximately 1.640. The enrollment fig
ures have shown a three per cent in
crease per year for the last four to five
years, he said. By next fall expected en
rollment will be about 1750.
The budget request includes five or
six additional staff members to handle
the increasing instructional load, Hobson
At present, the faculty, including ag
ricultural engineering, totals 75. This in
cludes only those who do some teaching,
Hobson said. There are others involved
in research and extension work.
Hobson pointed out that about one
half of the total instruction for Engineer
ing and Architecture comes from the
Arts and Sciences College. Most of this
instruction comes during the first two
years of the College's program.
The Engineering Experiment Station
accounts for $22,400 of the College's budg
et request. This is an increase of $21,391
over the last biennium.
The increase is to help the project
"become a meaningful activity in the to
tal industrial development of the state,"
according to Hobson.
He said he believes that the Engineer
ing and Architecture College can be "one
of the principle departments from the
University assisting in industrial devel
opment." So far, most of the work of the Sta
tion has been supported through the Uni
versity Foundation, according to Hobson,
"but we would like to 'add some state
support since it can be of value to the
whole state, particularly in industrial de
velopment." Another part of the College's budget
request will go for equipment and main
tenance, Hobson said. "We are par
ticularly pressed for equipment because
of all the recent changes being made."
While this equipment budget is built
into the present budget request, Hobson
said that "This has been neglected in the
past several years."
This has been due to the competitive
ness for faculty, he said. There have been
some allocations to match grants in this
area according to Hobson, but the Col
lege's equipment is still "way below the
level needed."
Speaking of the budget as a whole.
Hobson said "It's the minimum we could
possibly propose. It is a realistic plan to
meet the needs of the next two years. If
anything, it's below our actual- needs."
He said that there is a problem in
making up the budget, since it had to
be planned in April and May of last year
for the year beginning this July.
"Industry couldn't possibly do this,"
he said.
