North Korean Engineering

Found this interesting article today in the ASEE Prism: Hammer, Brush, and Sickle – Pulling back the curtain on North Korean engineering.

Clearly, the people’s paradise envisioned by the late leader Kim Il Sung falls short in economic planning, to say nothing of human rights. Yet there’s one field of endeavor in which this opaque, tightly controlled, and heavily militarized nation excels, at least where it coincides with regime priorities. And that’s engineering.
