From the era of cavemen to the era of smart phones, mankind sure saw incredible journey towards development. It wouldn’t be an exaggeration to say that we owe most of it to some to the remarkable engineers of the world. If it weren’t for the toil and brains of all the successful engineers of both past and the present, we wouldn’t have been able to get this far as a group of developed nations.
There have been many engineers who have turned the world around with their inventions and achievements, centuries long.
Here is a cursory look at some of the top engineers who made a significant contribution in shaping the world as it stands today!
Neil Armstrong, the man who first walked on the moon, needs no introduction. He happens to be an aerospace engineer and a man who built the very foundation for all the space expeditions that were later enhanced by the oncoming generations.
He was responsible for making the first of Boeings, which fly high even today. Philip Condit takes most credit for all the air travel that takes place in the world today. A graduate from MIT and Tokyo University, Philip ranks among the engineers who have changed the world.
A century and a half ago, there were no automobiles that enabled people to commute from one place to another, except for carriages. This was until Karl Benz, the German Engineer made the first ever modern car. He is responsible for the invention of internal combustion engine which was used in his car
