Four major Chinese engineering feats are listed among this year's Global Top Ten Engineering Achievements, according to the journal "Engineering", the flagship publication of the Chinese Academy of Engineering.

The four projects are the BeiDou Navigation Satellite System, the Hong Kong-Zhuhai-Macao Bridge, China's lunar exploration program and the Fuxing electric multiple unit high-speed train.

The others on the list are COVID-19 vaccines, the James Webb Space Telescope, the Falcon heavy recoverable rocket, supersized public cloud computing platform, breakthroughs in solar energy and a new generation of electric vehicles.

These achievements are major engineering projects or breakthroughs made in the last five years that have yielded great economic and social value. As a result, they represent the highest level of engineering science and technology in their respective fields.

The list was created by a global panel of engineers and technicians. The process consisted of an international call for nominations and recommendations, public surveys and final screenings by a selection committee.
