A Pioneering Department: Evolution from Rural Engineering to Biological and Environmental Engineering at Cornell University, 1907–2007 (Internet-First University Press, 2007). This history traces from 1900 the evolution of one of Cornell’s pioneering academic departments, then agricultural mechanics, to the present-day Department of Biological and Environmental Engineering. The department began as a farm-oriented discipline rooted in Cornell’s land-grant mission. Biological and environmental engineering is now a theoretical and applied discipline that centers on using biology as an engineering tool. The book also profiles the people who helped to make the department a leader in the field.
