Product Description


When we survey the landscape around us, we are continually reminded of the efforts and creative genius of engineers - whether in the form of a new road bridge, an opera house, a town centre development, an airport or perhaps more in the public focus, major projects such as the Channel Tunnel. This book gathers together contributions from 30 UK and overseas engineers who have influenced civil engineering in recent times. They were invited to write about their career and what encouraged them to be an engineer; who inspired them; what they found of interest; what fundamental principles they learned and carried with them; and more. The result is an accumulation of anecdotes, helpful advice and wisdom. The book should appeal to anyone in the industry, but especially to young people who may be considering a career in this profession.
