How Engineers Change the World

      1/3/2006

Venue: Bristol Temple Meads, UK

The name of Isambard Kingdom Brunel is synonymous with great engineering. Born in 1806, he was only 21 when he became resident engineer on his fatherís Thames Tunnel, responsible for the day-to-day running of one of the most challenging projects of the 19th century. A brilliant designer, innovative, entrepreneurial and unafraid of risk, he thought big and his vision of mass transport played a vital part in the shaping of the modern world.

2006 is the bicentenary of Brunelís birth and there will be a week of events, in London and Bristol, to celebrate. One of the main events will be the Brunel Bicentenary Conference set in Brunelís historic trainshed at Bristol Temple Meads. Gordon Masterton, ICE President in 2006 will lead the event. Distinguished engineers and a host of inspirational speakers will debate the huge contribution that engineers have made to our society.
