Description of the exhibit

MIT Museum’s Hart Nautical Collections were formed in 1924 under MIT’s Department of Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering, which was renamed the Department of Ocean Engineering in the 1970s. In 2005, Ocean Engineering merged with the Department of Mechanical Engineering to become one of seven major research focus areas.
