The Engineer is a London- based monthly magazine covering the latest developments and business news in engineering and technology in the UK and abroad.

History and description

The Engineer was founded by Edward Charles Healey, an entrepreneur and technology enthusiast with a financial interest in the railroad industry. His friends included Robert Stephenson and Isambard Kingdom Brunel . The magazine was created as a specialist magazine for engineers.

The Engineer began reporting on technology, inventions and patents during a boom in UK economic output. In the 19th century, market prices for raw materials were also published. Together with today's Engineering journal , the work is a valuable historical source for studying British economic history.

The magazine announced its last print edition on July 10, 2012, but the printed version was available again in September of the following year.
