About Gustave Eiffel
Gustave Bonickhausen dit Eiffel was born on December 15, 1832 in Dijon into a family originally from the Rhineland but established in France since the 18th century. A graduate of the École centrale des arts et manufactures in 1855, the young Eiffel was first destined for chemistry, thinking of taking over his uncle's chemical factory. But a family dispute put an end to this project and Gustave Eiffel then turned to metal construction. In 1856, he became secretary to Charles Nepveu, an entrepreneur specializing in this discipline, and carried out his first works.
