Example text

Medieval European engineers, like the ancient engineers, combined military and civil skills to carry construction, in the form of the Gothic arch and flying buttress, to heights unknown by the ancients. The sketchbook of Villard de Honnecourt, who lived and worked in the early thirteenth century, demonstrates the Gothic engineer's remarkable knowledge of natural and physical science, mathematics, geometry, and draftsmanship. Page 2 In Japan, China, India, and other Far Eastern areas, engineering developed separately but similarly.

A History of Engineering In order to gain a better perspective on the engineering profession, it is useful to understand how the profession developed through the centuries. C. The Persians, Greeks, and Romans, along with the Egyptians, took engineering to remarkable heights by using arithmetic, geometry, and physical science. Many famous ancient structures that are still standing today demonstrate the ingenuity and skill of these early pioneers of engineering. Medieval European engineers, like the ancient engineers, combined military and civil skills to carry construction, in the form of the Gothic arch and flying buttress, to heights unknown by the ancients.

As these skills develop, so does the amount of responsibility the civil engineer handles, until eventually he or she manages large projects that have budgets in the millions of dollars. Interpersonal skills combined with well-developed communications and engineering skills can give any engineer a distinct advantage when seeking a management position. Teaching Engineering. Last, but not least, many civil engineers, once they have earned advanced degrees, share their knowledge and experience as teachers or professors of engineering.
