Discover Engineering

The opening quote on the Discover Engineering Homepage reads: "Engineering has been called the invisible profession or the stealth profession because most people have no clue what engineers do. This Website, provided by the National Engineers Week and Discover Engineering team, is a Website dedicated to showing just what engineers do. Sections at the site include About Engineers, Cool Stuff!,...
Engineer On A Disk

Engineer On A Disk is a great resource for any undergraduate engineering student studying for a fundamentals exam. The material covered on the site spans nearly every engineering discipline and is maintained by a professor at Grand Valley State University. Topics include circuits, materials, computer programming and hardware, mechanical device design, mechatronics, quality control, manufacturing...
ISIS Canada Resource Centre

Intelligent Sensing for Innovative Structures (ISIS) is a joint program between several Canadian universities. Its work is spread across such disciplines as "civil, mechanical, materials, aerospace, and electrical engineering." The ISIS Web site has detailed information about four main research focuses, including fibre optic sensors, remote monitoring, innovative structures, and structural...
Welcome to the World's Longest Tunnel Page

This Web site contains information on hundreds of the world's longest tunnels. There are four main categories that list facts about road, subsea, railway, and canal tunnels. Each of these sections can be browsed in its entirety or separated into individual countries. The data is presented in tables and includes years of construction, length, depth, and gradient. Future projects are also shown, and...
Engineering Statistics Handbook

Developed by the National Institute of Standards and Technology (NIST), the Engineering Statistics Handbook is a massive resource for applied statistics methods and probability. The online publication covers a wide range of topics, with the intention of helping engineers and other professionals incorporate statistical techniques into their analysis and designs. It was originally aimed at workers...
The National Academies

The National Academies of Science was created in 1863 to advise the US government in scientific and technical matters. The Academy and its sister organizations "provide a public service by working outside the framework of government to ensure independent advice on matters of science, technology, and medicine." The National Academies Web site offers timely news articles and event information, as...
History of the Tacoma Narrows Bridge

The Department of Special Collections at the University of Washington has created an excellent online exhibit documenting the rise and (literal) fall of the Tacoma Narrows bridge in Washington State, an event referred to as the Pearl Harbor of engineering. The massive structure was built between 1938 and 1940 and, at the time of its completion, was the third longest suspension bridge in the world....
WFEO ComTech: Engineers and Sustainable Development

The World Federation of Engineering Organisations (WFEO) and its Committee on Technology outline on this Web site the roles of engineers for sustainable development. There is specific attention given to environmental protection and restoration with respect to energy use, natural resource extraction, and transportation. Worldwide progress toward sustainable development is considered, especially...
Bridge Building: Art and Science

This site is one of the most substantial, comprehensive sources on the Internet dedicated to bridge design and history. It has an incredible list of sections from which to choose, and each describes a particular bridge type or characteristic. Several pictures are included from all over the world that give examples of arch, truss, suspension, and many other bridge designs. There are also...
Engineer's Edge: Solutions by Design

Engineer's Edge is a great reference for a wide variety of engineering, design, and manufacturing information. Most of the material is in the form of online calculators and equation charts, which save users time that would otherwise be spent flipping through books. Other resources such as part specifications (e.g., drill sizes, gauge charts) and material properties are also available. Interactive...
