    7 Wonders of the World: Taj Mahal - Episode 309

    7 Wonders of the World: Taj Mahal - Episode 309

    As we continue to explore the 7 modern wonders of the world, we have decided to discuss the construction and history of what is likely the most iconic of the wonders: the Taj Mahal!

    King Jahangir, in Agra, India, had the Taj Mahal built for his "favorite wife," Mumtaz Mahal. It was built to be her final resting place, the fanciest mausoleum of all time. Romantic, right?

    What resulted is one of the most iconic buildings in the world! Thanks to tens of thousands of works, elephants galore, and more money than I care to think about, the Taj Mahal remains an unparalleled architectural feat.

    Great Engineering Universities: Georgia Tech - Episode 308

    Great Engineering Universities: Georgia Tech - Episode 308

    In this episode of our great engineering universities series, we head to the deep south to investigate the Georgia Institute of Technology. Founded way back in 1885 as the Georgia School of Technology, this storied university has grown to become one of the top engineering colleges in the United States, and even the world.

    Learn what it takes to get in to Georgia Tech, the acceptance rate for students, how you can help your chances of acceptance, the rankings of their engineering programs, and some less well known reasons why you might want to get your engineering degree at the Georgia Institute of Technology.

    Apache Attack Helicopter - Episode 307

    Apache Attack Helicopter - Episode 307

    The AH-64 Apache attack helicopter is the most advanced military helicopter in the world! Well, probably...

    Rumor has it, after the Vietnam war, the importance of helicopters was made clear, but the old Cheyanne was too slow on the attack and not well equipped for countering the heavily armored tanks of the USSR. After a quick contest to see who could make the coolest (or maybe best?) helicopter, the contract was awarded to Hughes Helicopters (now Boeing is pumping them out).

    There's way more that went into it, but why would you listen if I write it all out? Click listen to learn about how the Apache helicopter was designed, the weapons that it is equipped with, and what the future holds for this sweet piece of machinery.

    Inventions of the 1930s - Episode 306

    Inventions of the 1930s - Episode 306

    There are tons of new inventions showing up every day, but what about those inventions from years ago that got us to where we are today?

    In this episode of Unprofessional Engineering, we looked back at the most important and interesting inventions that came from the 1930s. Some HUGE inventions such as nuclear fission and the jet engine are still changing the world and being improved today, where others like the chocolate chip cookie and Twinkies seem like (very important) inventions from the 1930s that can't possibly be improved!
