Site of the Day for Tuesday, March 5, 2002 Greatest Engineering Achievements of the 20th Century From the National Academy of Engineering comes this well-organized website designed to showcase the revolutionary advances in technology which have changed our world beyond the wildest dreams of our nineteenth century forefathers. While the List's gentle members may occasionally feel a tad jaundiced about the intrusions these engineering feats have brought to their lives, they are always ready to recognize excellence. "The goal of the Greatest Achievements project is to celebrate a remarkable century of technological achievement. Initiated by the National Academy of Engineering, this project is a collaboration with the American Association of Engineering Societies, National Engineers Week, and 27 other professional engineering societies." - from the website and presumably written by engineers This is a most interesting website devoted to explaining how the major developments in technology have reshaped western society over the previous century. Each item in the "Greatest Achievements" list includes a brief introduction, its history and the impact of its development and a timeline outlining its implementation. From electrification to space age materials, this presentation offers a wealth of interesting material.
