About engineering timelines
Engineering timelines is an organisation with one main aim ... to celebrate the engineering heritage that shapes the British Isles and beyond. It was the idea of structural engineer Mark Whitby, conceived in the early days of the Web. He was struck by the possibilities a website could offer for uncovering historical and geographical connections and coincidences in the story of a profession engineering.
The site was conceived as a means to link the engineering works that surround us today with the past out of which they were born. It continues to be developed as a research tool for students and enthusiasts alike, with the support
of professional institutions, engineering practices and individual donors.
Engineering timelines is a not for profit organization and a registered charity.
