A Glimpse Of The Past Through The Civil Engineering Collection.Through ancient times "civil engineer" formed part of a broader profession best described as master builder. It included architecture, civil and military engineering. The title "chief of works" appeared in Egypt and the master builder was engaged in carrying out the great projects, pyramids, temples, and early irrigation works. Today the term includes primarily the professional aspects of construction, planning and design of works connected with transportation by rail, highway, waterway or air. The first American school was at the US Military Academy organized in 1802. Lillian Gilbreth is probably the only American engineer honored on a US postage stamp. Fewer than one in 200 engineers were women during the time of her career. She worked closely with her husband Frank a contracting engineer and efficiency expert until he died in 1924, and then continued his work. In 1912 she published Psychology of Management, in 1927 The Homemaker and her Job, (She had 12 children). They jointly published Fatigue Study in 1919 and Time Study in 1920. She devoted her remarkable expertise and experience to students of engineering and management the world over.
