2018 will be a special year for engineering

As mentioned elsewhere on this website, 2018 will be a big year for engineering in terms of the sector promoting itself to a wider audience. One strand will be the Institution of Civil Engineers’ 200th anniversary celebrations. Details are gradually emerging from the ICE’s website on activities linked to a 200 theme. I’ll try to update as I find out more. Separately the UK Government is promoting a Year of Engineering for 2018.

So how will the centenary of Sir John Wolfe Barry’s death feature on 22 January 2018?

To be honest I’m not really sure, but at least there’s this website and I will try to publish something special on the day and promote it via contacts and social media.

Watch this space.

I've been blogging since 2012 under different guises and on a range of topics mainly linked to education, but more recently focusing on the history of civil engineering and architecture. I am writing a book on the 19th Century Barry family of successful architects and civil engineers who built the Houses of Parliament, Tower Bridge and the Royal Opera House in London.
