Abstract


This section presents some outlines describing the advances made by engineering in Colombia. Turriago begins the section by describing aspects regarding the history of petrol in Colombia until the middle of the 20th century. René Andrés Meziat Restrepo then gives a summary of his book entitled GestiónAmbiental—Obras Civiles y Construcciones (Environmental Management–Civil Work and Construction) and Hernando Monroy Valencia describes the development of Colombian construction-related engineering whilst Augusto Ruiz Corredor closes the section with a report about pre-stressed concrete bridges in Colombia. These reviews provide readers with an opportunity to learn more about part of the role which engineering has played in Colombia’s development.
