The Illinois Technograph -- University of Illinois College of Engineering


The Illinois Technograph is the University of Ilinois' award-winning student-produced engineering magazine. Here we step back 47 years into the Technograph's archives where, tucked in among the articles on magnetohydrodynamic generators and the ads for deep strength asphalt pavement materials, you can find the monthly "Technocutie" column featuring a cheerful co-ed eager to share her phone number and measurements (no, we're NOT talking mass, force, pressure, or density here) with the boys in Engineering Hall. The enrollment of women in the University of Illinois College of Engineering has increased from less than 1% in 1967 to slightly over 16% in 2008 and the Technocutie column is no more. We recently digitized the entire backrun of the Illinois Technograph; issues from 1960 - 1984 are now available in IDEALS. View the complete run.
