Feature Articles : Reflecting on the Origins of Civil Engineering in the Centennial Year

Japan Society of Civil Engineers (JSCE) is celebrating its 100th anniversary in 2014. The "JSCE Magazine" issued in November 2014, exactly 100 years since the establishment of JSCE in November 24, 1914, focuses on rethinking what is “Life of Affluence” of people contributed by civil engineering. To achieve this, the role of civil engineering is identified from three perspectives: “Expand”, “Support”, and “Protect”.In addition, attention is given to "Nurture" people who work for it. This special issue aims to provide an opportunity, energy and support to JSCE members to reflect on the “origins of civil engineering” in the centennial year, through reviewing the history of society and civil engineering in Japan in these 100 years.
