story by sommer sneed The School of Engineering at the University of Mis- sissippi was the first engineering school established in the state. The Board of Trustees ' program for natural sciences was founded at the university and later, in 1900, The Univer- sity of Mississippi School of Engineer- ing was officially founded. The dean of the School of Engineering is Dr. Allie M. Smith. He is the leader of a variety of engineering branches including chemi- cal, electrical, civil, mechanical, and geological engineering, and computer science and telecommunications. These divisions are housed in Weir, Carrier, and Anderson halls on the University campus. In addition to the many branches of engineering, the School of Engineer- ing also offers a number of extra-curric- ular activities and prominent student organizations, such as Tau Beta Pi. The University of Mississippi is the home of the Mississippi Beta chapter of Tau Beta Pi, the national honorary fraternity for engineering students. Other organiza- tions include student chapters of the American Institute for Chemical Engi- neers, the American Society of Civil Engineers, the Association for Comput- ing Machinery and the Institute of Elec- trical and Electronics Engineers. All of these chapters are devoted to furthering the education and professional develop- ment of Americas future engineers.

Small class- es provide more one on one interaction between students and professors. Individual hands on experiments also assist in furthering the complete engineer- ing education. In con- glomeration with the school, the research centers provide great resources for further- ing technology, and are paramount to an engi- neering student ' s edu- cational experience. These centers include the Center for Computational Hydroscience, the Center for Wireless Communications, the composite Materi- als Research Group, and the Mississippi Mineral Resources Institute. The primary function of the School of Engineering at The University of Mississippi is to educate future engi- neers for the betterment of our society. The engineers emerging from the Uni- versity of Mississippi will clean up our environment, boost the economy, and ensure the safety of impending genera- tions, while carrying on the respect and the great educational traditions they have learned at The University of Mississippi. The School of Engineering at Ole Miss is comprised of six academic departments that will advance their graduating students with career objec- tives for the future.

During the tall semester, each ( )le Miss education student is placed at one of eight different schools ranging from Ponotoc to New Albany to Oxford. I he spring semester consists of observation labs and action labs where students observe, assist, and teach at least one lesson in the classroom. Education majors alternate between three weeks oi classroom experience and three weeks of seminars at the University: During the Spring semester, each student is assigned to one classroom in the area. While many typical college stu- dents sleep late and take afternoon naps, a student teacher must remain in school all day, participate in early morn- ing duty, and attend faculty meetin. Each student teacher is given the oppor- tunity to teach several lessons as well as develop close, personal relationships with the students in their classrooms. academics 89
