The British Columbia Institute of Technology maintains this Web site, which contains "a combination of text and graphics to introduce the field of civil and structural engineering." Several examples of important modern and historical developments in these fields are cited. The latter category includes discussions about the Roman aqueducts and Galileo's insights into engineering mechanics, while more recent topics such as highway line painting and the Golden Gate Bridge are also outlined. Two additional modules about dams and road design are in progress, but no completion date is given.
