7 Engineering Wonders of the World
We often debate the definition of wonder due to the ambiguity of facts around an undiscovered mystery. However, when it comes to engineering marvels, there is no debate. Below is a list of the 7 most spectacular engineering marvels of the world.
 1. Hoover Dam
 2. Burj Khalifa
 3. Akashi Kaikyo Bridge
The largest suspension bridge in the world. Not only did this take 10 years to build, it also involved approximately 2 million workers. The Akashi Kayiko is built to survive earthquakes and hurricanes.
The Channel Tunnel is the longest undersea tunnel in the world. Digging out the ground to create this tunnel added 75 acres of land to Britain's shore line. The tunnel is 75m below the sea bed and connects France and England.
 5. Three Gorges Dam
 6. Panama Canal
