By the end of the 1930s, Auburn had essentially recovered, but then faced new conditions caused by World War II. Office of Education asked all American engineering schools to join in a "crash" program to produce what was often called "instant engineers." API became an early participant in an activity that eventually became Engineering, Science, and Management War Training (ESMWT).
As war approached in 1940, there was a great shortage of engineers and scientists needed for the defense industries. Fully funded by the government and coordinated by Auburn's Dean of Engineering, college-level courses were given in concentrated, mainly evening classes at sites across Alabama.
Eventually, football replaced polo as the main sport on campus.
The college was renamed the Alabama Polytechnic Institute (API) in 1899, largely because of Broun's influence.
