Cambridge Engineering: The First 150 Years takes the reader on a journey that starts with the genesis of engineering as an academic discipline, leads to the creation of the Department in 1875, and looks forward to its plans for the 150th anniversary in 2025. The history is told through the extraordinary lives of engineering leaders, who fought through the initial derision of other disciplines to take the faculty from a workshop in a wooden hut to stand as the largest department in the University. The narrative comes right up to date with stories from the latest research and its positive impact on the world. Cambridge Engineering concludes with the vision for the future as the Department moves to its new state-of-the-art home at West Cambridge and takes a global lead in redefining the discipline. Richly illustrated with images from past and present, this hardback will appeal not only to alumni, but to anyone, old or young, who is ready to explore how engineering has changed the world and dream how it will drive further revolutions.
