Paper engineering graduates were required to write a senior thesis from the 1950's through 1990's and these were housed in the library. Since we have moved all of our honors theses online, as well as all of the dissertations and master's theses done at Western, we decided to digitize all of these senior theses and add them to ScholarWorks. It is interesting to see how engineering has changed over the decades.

We are in the process of digitizing and uploading the 600 plus theses, so if you don't see one that you think should be there, please be patient, we will get to it.
