Engineering is saving lives and protecting cities from the impacts of earthquakes. Earthquakes can be incredibly devastating, and throughout history, there have been countless examples of entire cities being brought low, with damage even causing fires and flooding afterwards.

Engineering is saving lives and protecting cities from the impacts of earthquakes. Earthquakes can be incredibly devastating, and throughout history, there have been countless examples of entire cities being brought low, with damage even causing fires and flooding afterwards. Less than a century ago, a strong earthquake could sometimes result in the deaths of many thousands of people. Thanks to advances in civil engineering, the construction of buildings, bridges, roads and highways has progressed resulting in safer structures for our society. To learn more, checkout this infographic created by Norwich University’s Online Master of Civil Engineering Program.
