Top Nine Feats in Aeronautical & Manufacturing Engineering

Aeronautical & Manufacturing Engineering are prominent fields of engineering that cover much of what we encounter in our day-to-day lives. The science behind Aeronautical Engineering is not just limited to aircraft, as aerodynamics is applied to all modes of transport. Meanwhile, Manufacturing Engineering is responsible for the processes that lead to the large-scale production of almost any man-made object. We've compiled a list of the Top Nine Landmark Moments in Aeronautical & Manufacturing Engineering:

9. The First Modern Factory

Although the identity of the first modern factory is disputed, what many historians do agree on is that it was built at some time during the 18th Century. Despite this, Matthew Boulton's Soho Manufactory in Birmingham is perhaps most widely regarded as the first modern factory. With the discovery of steam power occurring within the same century, the 1700s can surely be seen as the dawn of modern factories, and as such, a key moment in the history of Manufacturing Engineering.
