Civil Engineering Blog List

Posted by: Skylar In: internet coverage

So, I was browsing technorati today, and I came across the a post listing blogs for architecture.

I really wish I could find something similar for civil engineers. I’ve been looking around for some daily RSS feeds to read on civil engineering and it’s just not a very popular subject in the blogosphere. Nonetheless, here are a few blogs that I have recently subscribed to:

The Urban Workbench
A well-laid-out blog written by someone from B.C. Canada (if I’m not mistaken) which is great for me, being a fellow Canadian.

A blog by the US EPA. It’s one of the more frequent blogs in the areas of environmental and civil engineering. Not always very technical, but interesting and popular nonetheless.

A blog about the economy and water as a resource. Interesting to see an economic look at water in North America. Found via the urban workbench.

Stormwater blog RSS Feed
This is an rss feed from that has some interesting articles from time to time. I like to keep it in my rss reader just to see if anything interesting comes up.

So, for anyone who stumbles across this blog, where do you go for your fix of civil engineering on the web?

You may want to try out blog – it consists of topical information as it relates to the civil engineering industry. Some blog entries are more technical then others, but they mainly discuss trends in the industry and civil engineering headlines. Also discusses workplace issues, economy, etc, all relating to civil engineering.

I agree with you – have spent some time today trying to find the same type of list and decided to try a trick I used to find public works-related sites: Using google alerts you can set up an alert for specific terms like “civil engineering” then you can read the articles in your Google Reader.

I used mine to put a feed on my website so anyone visiting will get the most up-to-date stories on the Web about Public Works. If you visit the site, you will see the type of feed you get at the top (although you have to use an additional tool like Yahoo Pipes to get this). Eventually this service can help lead you to other blogs.

I am adding your site to my list too!

Pam, thanks for the comment.

I definitely agree that google alerts are a great way to receive the news you need in any given field – no matter how small the niche. I was pleasantly surprised when I found that they created rss feeds for the service (it was previously email only).

I have found a few other blogs in my discipline now, so it must be high time to update this list!
