Mteto Nyati knew as child in Mthatha, working at his mother’s store, that he wanted to fix and build things. After his studies in Engineering at Natal University, he headed for Johannesburg to work at Afrox. He was the only black engineer and the advice he received was ‘don’t mess up’. He didn’t. Today he is one of South Africa’s top CEOs.
An experienced civil engineer presents the physics and fundamentals underlying the many fields of engineering. Far from a dry, nuts-and-bolts exposition, 101 Things I Learned in Engineering School uses real-world examples to show how the engineer's way of thinking can illuminate questions from the simple to the profound- Why shouldn't soldiers march across a bridge? Why do buildings want to float and cars want to fly? What is the difference between thinking systemically and thinking systematical
