Engineering was a weekly British magazine founded in 1865 and published by the Office for Publication and Advertisements which reported on developments and news in many disciplines of engineering in Britain and abroad. It is now produced and published electronically by Media Culture PLC.


The Engineering magazine was founded in 1866 by the American engineer and locomotive designer Zerah Colburn in London as a weekly rival to The Engineer.

Colburn had used funds provided by Henry Bessemer, the English engineer and inventor known chiefly in connection with the Bessemer process for the manufacture of steel. Engineering was an instant success and soon overtook The Engineer as Colburn’s writing style and wide engineering knowledge gave readers the information they needed.

Engineering was initially published as an illustrated weekly magazine, edited by Zerah Colburn, with volumes published twice yearly in January and July. Volume 1 was issued 1866.[1]
