CHALLENGE AND CHANGE: An Illustrated History of Engineering and Geoscience in Newfoundland and Labrador By D. R. Tarrant, P.Eng.
270 pages, 6" x 9"
A look at Newfoundland and Labrador's exciting history of engineering and geoscience by reviewing the projects resulting from these professions - the mines, hydro projects, railroads, paper mills, and oil developments. Many among them have been of a world-class standard such as the massive Churchill Falls Hydro project and the Hibernia platform. However, not all of the province's engineering and geoscience history is recent, since before the professions became regulated, there were numerous engineering and geoscience undertakings in the province. Some of these include the early transatlantic telegraph and telephone cables, the railway, the highways, various mining operations, and the military bases of the 1940s.
In 1952, the Association of Professional Engineers of Newfoundland was formed to regulate the practice of Professional Engineering in the province.
This book commemorates the fiftieth anniversary of that association, which in 1989 was expanded to include geoscientists and renamed the Association of Professional Engineers and Geoscientists of Newfoundland (APEGN).
