The Civil Engineers

Description

The first history of the Institution of Civil Engineers to be illustrated in colour looks at the development of the profession over nearly 200 years and includes biographies of some of the greatest engineers who made these changes possible, charting the successes of construction from the great engineering advances of Victorian times to the Channel Tunnel Rail Link.

A fascinating and informative read for all those interested in the history of ICE and how it has grown as well as the civil engineering industry and its impact on the world in which we live.

New from the same authors: The Contractors
