About This Project

Engineering Icons

Great engineers come from many backgrounds and follow many diverse paths. Teams of good, passionate people make iconic projects happen. Within those teams are standout people who add that something extra special and also deserve to be called “Icons”.

Iconic engineering projects make a special difference – with that unique creative spark of human imagination that puts science to work for the greater good.

It’s never easy – but always worth it.
