The Shifting Value Systems of Civil Engineers||Authors:||Shotton, Elizabeth||Permanent link:||http://hdl.handle.net/10197/8430||Date:||9-Apr-2017||Abstract:||The history of maritime engineering typically concentrates on the development of significant ports, the evolution of technological advances, or the contribution of a singular individual.
