Essays on the Engineering Life
Posted by Alison Trost on February 23, 2010 at 11:13 AM.


In “Bridginess: More of the Civil Engineering Life” author Brian Brenner, P.E., turns his pen and his wit to the subjects of urban sprawl, airport infrastructure planning, and, of course, bridges. This collection of essays ranges from humorous to informative, autobiographical to historical. After reading this collection, you will know bridges from more angles than a through truss.


Brenner is a vice president and structural engineer at Fay, Spofford & Thorndike, Burlington, Mass., and a professor at Tufts University, Medford, Mass. “Bridginess” demonstrates the full range of his talent as a writer, as well as an engineer, allowing him to make civil engineering funny, interesting, and at times, even glamorous.
