The first Master’s program was begun in 1979, and in 1981 the College started the process of restructuring into Mechanical, Civil, and Electrical Engineering departments. The rest of the 1980s brought several beginnings including the Computer Science Department (1984), an inter-institutional Ph.D. program (1986), and degree-specific Master’s programs (1987). In 1993, Ph.D. programs were begun in Mechanical and Electrical Engineering, and the following year the College was dedicated as the William States Lee College of Engineering. During 1997-1998, the motorsports program began, and the School of Information Technology was created, leading to Computer Science’s move out of Engineering in 2000.
