Greatest Engineering Achievements of the 20th Century

Greatest Engineering Achievements of the 20th Century

That’s a mouthful of a title but it is what this site is all about. Come here and learn about what the crowning engineering achievements of the 20th century are.

You’ll notice upon arriving that the list is spelled out right in front of you and numbered one to twenty. But if you click on any of the topics you can learn all about them. Each section will give you an introduction, then at the bottom of the page there is a link to the History of each item and the Timeline for each item.

I chose Lasers and Fiber Optics to use as my example here. I click in on number 18, I learn all about what fields lasers and fiber optics are used in. Then I learn the history of how they came to be then I click on the timeline and I find out that the first steps to make these things began in 1917 when Albert Einstein establishes stimulated emissions.

Each topic is concise and to the point and even I could understand some of the finer points of each section of technology. So it’s easy to understand and gives you the history of each one without being longwinded.

This site gets an A+ for educational purposes, and an A++ for usability, ease of navigation and information. I think you will enjoy it as much as I did just from a curiosity stand point of what are the top twenty crowning achievements of the 20th century. What will the 21st century have to add to these marvels is what I wonder.
