The Engineer (magazine)

The Engineer (magazine)

"The Engineer" is a London-based fortnightly magazine covering the latest developments and business news in engineering and technology in the UK and internationally. Founded in January 1856, it is among the world's oldest professional journals.

"The Engineer" was established by Edward Charles Healey, an entrepreneur and engineering enthusiast with financial interests in the railways whose friends included Robert Stephenson and Isambard Brunel. The journal set out to chronicle and explain the vast array of technical developments underway during Britain's Victorian age of innovation. Before the end of the 19th century "The Engineer" had already covered events such as Bessemer's process for the manufacture of steel, the invention of the telephone and the light developed by Thomas Edison.

Over the following century and a half "The Engineer" reflected not just the rapid advance of engineering and technology, but also the history of Great Britain. For example, its early years recorded many of the huge and ambitious projects carried out throughout the British Empire. By the Second World War, the magazine was focused on the role of engineers in the darkest hours of Britain's battle for survival against Nazi Germany, for example through the Rolls-Royce Merlin Engine developed to power the RAF's Spitfire fighter plane.

Along the way "The Engineer" covered some of modern history's landmark events, including the sinking of The Titanic the development of television, the launch of Sputnik and the Anglo-French co-operation that led to Concorde. "The Engineer" website features many of these contemporary articles.

"The Engineer" and its website "The Engineer Online" http://www.theengineer.co.uk cover technological innovations and their applications across a wide range of disciplines and industries, including; aerospace, communications and defence. The magazine and the website also include jobs sections for professional engineers and graduates. They are published by London-based Centaur Media plc.
