The ‘Invisible Superheroes’ of Civil Engineering

The Institution of Civil Engineers are marking their 200th anniversary with a Superhero themed exhibition.

Engineers from the past and present have been given Superhero alter-egos to highlight the behind-the-scenes experts who help make life better for others.

The exhibition sees the bridge maker Thomas Telford transformed into Colossus, while Andy Mitchell, the CEO of the Thames Tideway Tunnel is named Infrastructo.

The ‘Invisible Superheroes’ exhibition is open to the public at the Institution of Civil Engineers throughout 2018.
