Hide Profile

The Society for the Promotion of Engineering Education, which was founded in 1893 and became part of the American Society for Engineering Education in 1946, was a professional society of engineering school deans, professors, practicing engineers and industrial executives. Its aim was to advance research in engineering, promote cooperative programs between industry and the academy, and sensitize its various constituencies to the relationship between "engineering and economics." For most of its fifty-two year existence the society was based at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. During the 1930s and 1940s, Dugald C. Jackson, Professor of Electrical Engineering at M.I.T., served as executive director. M.I.T. president Karl Compton and Gerard Swope from the General Electric Company were active members.
