Our Statement

Our Mission

The mission of the site is to provide a resource for civil engineers to find articles, videos, and other media about construction and engineering. The information on this site is free. The slogan of “enabling civil engineers to enable the world” provides insight into what I want for this site. I want to empower civil engineers so that they can use their skills to do good, just like I try to do with my own professional work.

Our Vision

We hope to provide resources for civil engineers, or “builders of the world.”  Knowledge is power, so we want to provide knowledge to anyone who wants it. We created our free articles section with this in mind. These articles are meant to be relatively brief summaries of their respective topics. The articles cover much more material than can be reasonably expected to fit in this section.
