Gustav Eiffel, is best known for the world-famous Eiffel Tower, built for the 1889 Universal Exposition in Paris, and his contribution to building the Statue of Liberty in New York.
He also presented a project to build the Dom Luis I Bridge in Porto and his student Theophile Seyrig built it. We are sure that IEEE UP Student Branch will organize a visit there during IEEE R8 SYP Congress 2018 and you will have the chance to take a lot of selfies!!
