Administrative history

The Faculty of Applied Science was one of the first faculties at the University of British Columbia. In 1915, with the official opening of the University, the Faculty of Applied Science appointed Reginald W. Brock, its first Dean. He would serve from 1915-1935. He was followed by John N. Finlayson (1936-1950), H.J. Macleod (1951-1954), Henry C. Gunning (1954-1959), David M. Myers (1960-1965), William Armstrong (1966-1969), W.D. Finn (1970-1979), L.M. Wedepohl (1979-1986), Axel Meisen (1986-1997), Michael Isaacson (1997-2008), Tyseer Aboulnasr (2008-2011), Eric Hall (pro tem, 2011-2013), and Marc Parlange (2013-present).
In the Faculty's early days, courses were only offered through the Second Year in Civil, Mechanical, and Mining and Metallurgy Engineering. The Faculty now oversees two Schools, the first from the former Department of Architecture, becoming the School of Architecture (1949) and later the School of Architecture and Landscape Architecture (2005), and the second from the Department of Nursing and Health, which became the School of Nursing (1950). There is also a School of Engineering at UBC Okanagan, established in 2005. The Faculty currently offers undergraduate and graduate degrees in engineering, architecture/landscape architecture, and nursing.
