Civil Engineering Assignment

  1. Mar 2, 2008 #1
    1. The problem statement, all variables and given/known data
    We are required to write an essay about a well-recognized engineer, who has designed numorous well-known structures(bridges, monuments etc.) internationally (preferably).

    2. Relevant equations
    I just need a couple of NAMES of those engineers and they have to have contributed somehow in civil engineering.

    3. The attempt at a solution

    I've went to research Mr.Gustav Eiffel, the designer of the Eiffel Tower and the Statue Of Liberty

    but de Lesseps attempted the Panama Canal before the USA took over. He was successful with the Suez Canal though, if I remember right.
