The Harold and Inge Marcus Department of Industrial and Manufacturing Engineering is the industrial engineering department at the Pennsylvania State University in State College, Pennsylvania, U.S.A. Founded in 1909, it is the oldest industrial engineering department in the world. According to the most recent U.S. News & World Report university rankings, the undergraduate program is ranked eighth in the United States and the graduate program fourth. The department is headed by Paul Griffin and since 2000 has been based in the Leonhard Building, a $12 million structure containing the FAME manufacturing lab. Named for alumnus Harold Marcus and his wife Inge, the department employs 25 faculty members, who in 2007 served 163 graduate and 345 undergraduate students. Among the department's alumni are Harold W.

Famous quotes containing the words harold, department, industrial and/or engineering:

    Well, at least I have the satisfaction of having destroyed a terrible monster, and in doing so rid the world of an awful curse.
    Griffin Jay, and Harold Young. Stephen Banning (Dick Foran)

    The African race evidently are made to excel in that department which lies between the sensuousness and the intellectual—what we call the elegant arts. These require rich and abundant animal nature, such as they possess; and if ever they become highly civilised, they will excel in music, dancing and elocution.
    Harriet Beecher Stowe (1811–1896)

    Literary works cannot be taken over like factories, or literary forms of expression like industrial methods. Realist writing, of which history offers many widely varying examples, is likewise conditioned by the question of how, when and for what class it is made use of.
    Bertolt Brecht (1898–1956)

    Mining today is an affair of mathematics, of finance, of the latest in engineering skill. Cautious men behind polished desks in San Francisco figure out in advance the amount of metal to a cubic yard, the number of yards washed a day, the cost of each operation. They have no need of grubstakes.
    Merle Colby, U.S. public relief program (1935-1943)
