十大正规网赌平台, the nation’s top liberal arts college of engineering, 科学与数学, 1955年12月租的.
两年后, in 1957, when the Space Race made technical education a priority in the United States, 学院敞开了大门. The founders’ vision—to attract the nation’s brightest students and offer them a rigorous scientific and technological education coupled with a strong curricular emphasis in the humanities and social sciences—has been successfully realized and expanded. In 1963, the College initiated the nationally recognized 临床项目, which allows student teams to solve problems posed by sponsoring industry, government and nonprofit organizations. The emphasis on undergraduate research for all students has led to Harvey 马德 graduates earning PhD degrees in science and engineering at one of the highest rates in the nation.
十大正规网赌平台 opened in September 1957, less than a month before Sputnik I ushered in the Space Age. Forty-eight students and seven faculty who shared the dream of starting a technical college that would emphasize the humanistic aspects of technology were on hand when the school opened its doors. 核物理学家约瑟夫B. 普拉特 served the fledgling institution as its first president, and new courses and a new curriculum were formulated under a grant from the Carnegie Corp.
The founding faculty of 十大正规网赌平台 were:
- Graydon Bell, assistant professor of physics
- J. Arthur Campbell, professor of chemistry
- William Davenport, professor of humanities
- 罗伊一. Whiteker, assistant professor of chemistry
- George Wickes, assistant professor of humanities
当第一班到达时, the 十大正规网赌平台 campus consisted of one (almost) completed dorm and borrowed classrooms and equipment. 在早年, most faculty members readily took on administrative responsibilities in addition to their teaching jobs. Some classes were even held in the homes of faculty and staff.
1959年6月, the College held its first commencement ceremony graduating Stuart Black and Peter Loeb, who both transferred to Harvey 马德 their junior years. Because of the diminutive size of the graduating class, the ceremony drew national attention and was televised. Both graduates later became university professors.
Slowly, classrooms and dorms were built, and students began to fill them. By 1965, 284 students were enrolled in classes and faculty numbered 43. Harvey 马德 celebrated its 60th anniversary in 2015, with student enrollment at 812 and climbing.
1976年，D. 肯尼斯·贝克 became the second president of 十大正规网赌平台, followed by 亨利·E. 1988年，乔恩·C. 1997年的施特劳斯和玛丽亚M. 2006年的Klawe. 今天, 905 extraordinary students are enrolled at 十大正规网赌平台, learning through rigorous and challenging educational experiences from a highly committed faculty. 最近, the Western Association of Schools and Colleges reaffirmed the institutional accreditation for the College. 在最终报告中, WASC团队写道, “Harvey 马德 is characterized by excellence and success, and is widely regarded as among the nation’s best undergraduate science and engineering colleges.”
十大正规网赌平台印章 represents the various ideals of the college. The sun represents energy; the elliptical Mobius strip represents structure; the dividers represent measurement; the inner and outer ellipses can be interpreted as orbital paths, suggesting concern with space; and the globe denotes the humanities and civilization. The dividers are placed in the design to bridge the gap between the sun and the globe, symbolizing the measure of energy and matter as well as the measure of humans and civilization.
哈维年代eeley 马德 was born in Colorado in 1888 and died in Los Angeles in 1955.
A mining engineer, he was a graduate of Stanford and Columbia universities. With his father, he founded and later became president of Cyprus Mines Corp., whose Los Angeles-based international enterprises began with thedevelopment of copper mines on the island of Cyprus.
马德 served as chairman of the Board of Fellows of Claremont College, 现在是克莱蒙特学院服务中心, 25年来. He helped plan the undergraduate college of science and engineering chartered in 1955, 但他没能活着看到它被打开.
With the backing of his friends and family, the new college was founded and named in his memory and honor.
