Eduardo Cejuela, Spain
From Julius Caesar to Composite materials
Eduardo Cejuela has a Master’s Degree in Civil Engineering for Universidad de Cantabria (Spain) and is performing his PhD in Coastal Engineering, investigating new possibilities of caissons technology, leveraged through the historical knowledge in this subject. He has published two papers about history of caissons construction and its new challenges and possibilities.
He has worked most of his professional career as a contractor in infrastructure projects, usually in contact with remote areas, that have marked his way of understanding engineering and ingenuity as a powerful tool to build in areas with limited access to technology. This way of understanding engineering has led him to investigate since the origin of caissons how they were built, and how could they be built today in very remote areas, by transporting it or by using technologies well known in some remote areas, as construction in fiber glass or composite materials could be.
He is now working as consultant for different engineering companies, mainly estimating costs and proposing method statements for construction of infrastructures in Africa’s remote areas.
