Organizational History:

Electrical engineering courses have been a part of the curriculum at Washington State University since 1892. Initially, however, these courses were offered under the auspices of the Department of Mechanical Engineering. In 1903 the name was changed to the Department of Mechanical and Electrical Engineering and in 1917 this department was incorporated into the College of Mechanical Arts and Engineering. A separate Department of Electrical Engineering was established in 1933.
