Biographical / Historical
A major reorganization and combining of the Departments of Aeronautics, Civil Engineering, and Mechanics in 1960 resulted a newly-formed Department of Experimental and Theoretical Mechanics (also possibly known as Mechanics and Materials Science, though unconfirmed) which was later shortened to the Department of Mechanics around this time. This program led the fields of continuum mechanics, theoretical and experimental fluid and solid mechanics, and thermodynamics. Eventually the program was renamed the Department of Mechanical Engineering in 1985.
