if the title should be changed to 18 MEN who we didn't know were engineers until I saw the last image.  I guess we don't have as many female engineers doing other high exposure stuff besides engineering (which is cool on it's own!) :)

Hitchcock surprised me, too, Rob. I thought I had heard of most of the famous engineers over the years, but Hitchcock's name had never come up previously, at least for me.

Nice slide show,. Chuck. Yes, that's right about George Bailey. He wanted to travel the world, then come home and build things. The most surprising one on the list for me is Hitchcock.

I have come across many engineers having the passion of music and singing, I just simply cant relate between this combination.

My favorite line from any interview I've done over the past 29 years is John Sununu's: "No level of glibness can get you through a thermodynamics exam."

I agree. I also find it interesting that in Frank Capra's best-known film, It's a Wonderful Life, the main character, George Bailey, dreamed of being a civil engineer.

Of all these people, the ones who got into the filmmaking business are really inspirational. Those, and the sports folks. Primarily because their careers are far fetched from their education history.
