thomsonInobservatoryStarting in the early 2000s the ETC began creating pages on pioneers of technology who made world-changing inventions.

Our list has some of the most influential and interesting engineers of the electrical age (1800-2016). Use our short biographies, photos, and even videos to learn about these amazing pioneers of technology.

Scientists vs. Engineers:

The emphasis here is on engineers and experimental scientists who invented patentable devices or who made key discoveries that led to their development. The list includes Mechanical, Chemical, and Electrical Engineers. There are many great engineers which are not listed here, however this list is a good place to start, or learn more about a pioneer you already admire!
