The Engineer Department was established in 1802 as part of the War Dept. Its name was later changed to the Corps of Engineers when it became part of the Department of Defense. The USACE was originally responsible for construction of coastal defenses, managing aids to navigation, and surveying and mapping. Its mission was later extended to include flood control and construction of military facilities abroad.
The Corps currently includes the Waterways Experiment Station, the Army Cold Regions Research and Engineering Laboratory, the Coastal Engineering Research Center, Construction Engineering Research Laboratory, and the Institute of Water Resources.
