In 1912, the Maryland State Legislature appropriated $600,000 to the university to establish a school or department of applied science and advanced technology. By 1913, the first engineering class matriculated, and the newly built Maryland Hall welcomed its first students the next year. In 1915, the first Johns Hopkins engineers graduated from the university.
