Archie Alphonso Alexander (14 May 1888 – 4 January 1958) was an African-American mathematician and engineer and an early African-American graduate of the University of Iowa. Alexander went on to be successful in operating his own firm, and was responsible for an impressive list of major engineering projects Many bridges, freeways, tunnels, power plants, and viaducts that are used today were designed and built by Alexander from the 1920s to the 1950s

Architect, Julia Morgan, designed over 700 buildings in California. She is best known for her work on Hearst Castle in San Simeon. She was one of the first women to graduate from the University of California, Berkeley with a degree in civil engineering. Paris, 1896: she was initially refused admission to Ecole Nationale et Speciale des Beaux-Arts to study architecture because a woman had never before been admitted; she persevered and graduated. She opened her own firm in 1904 in San…

Especially in case of analyzing and calculating complex elements; numerical analysis and software play a very crucial part in civil engineering sector. Consequently this simplifies the work of civil engineers. Besides, some engineering firms prioritize that all analysis and designs should be performed algorithmically in order to get high accuracy that the software provides utilizing limited element analysis or other methods in which manual analysis sporadically limited to approximations.

Have you ever had to hire an engineering firm? If you have you know it is often a tedious process with many variables. Engineering firms come in many sizes from one consultant to firms that have consultants from all different disciplines within engineering.

I think most young civil engineers lack the judgement to decide between the theoretical and the practical. They can get lost in the mathematics easily. For example; I was working at a firm doing structural design. I could use an excel spreadsheet to design a circular tank in about 2 hours. The young engineers liked to use the structural software but they took about 8 hours to do the design. Sure their design was more accurate but my answer was good to 0.01 while theirs was good to…
