The Records Group is broken down intellectually into the following record series: 1. Subject Records, 2. Faculty Meeting Records, and 3. Accreditation Records. Physically the files from when the College was named the College of Technology are filed first and then secondary arranged by subject. Files from when the college was renamed the College of Engineering & Science are filed after this and then secondary by subject. Some file names were changed and dates added to make them more meaningful and to correct errors.
