IntechOpen: Physical Sciences, Engineering and Technology (CC BY)

National Science Digital Library (Various CC and other licences)

A collection of high quality online educational resources for teaching and learning with emphasis on the sciences, technology, engineering, and mathematics.


Engineering Statistics (CC BY-NC-SA)

This Engineering Statics course contains many interactive elements, spread throughout, to promote conceptual understanding and problem-solving skills. These include simulations, some with adjustable parameters controlled by the student, to help visualize concepts; “walk-throughs” that integrate voice and graphics to explain an example of the procedure or a difficult concept; and, most prominently, interactive exercises in which students practice problem solving, while receiving hints and feedback.

Mechatronics Technology Program (CC BY-NC-SA)

Created through a collaboration with the OPEN Platform+ program, the National STEM Consortium academic certificate in Mechatronics Technology is built on a 30-semester-credit model and is mapped to the Siemens Mechatronic Systems Level 1 certification. The skills taught include electrical, mechanical, and computer technologies. Graduates are prepared for entry-level Mechatronics positions in almost every industry.

Public Policy Analysis for Engineers (CC BY-NC-SA)

This course will introduce students to the interrelationship of engineering and public policy, how to conduct neutral policy analysis, and then apply that knowledge in case studies to practice the skills they have learned. The modules take a flipped classroom/active learning approach by using short videos to educate students, activities to practice the skills taught and incorporates real-world examples such as hydraulic fracturing, drones, and 3D printing.


Edinburgh DataShort: College of Science & Engineering (Various CC licences)

A digital repository of research data produced at the University of Edinburgh by the College of Science and Engineering.


Engineering Technology (CC BY)

This website consists of a series of 3D simulations on engineering technology.

Supplementary Materials

Engineering Technology Simulations (CC BY)

A collection of open simulations covering automation and robotics, electrical & motor control, process control or renewable energy.


This is a British Columbia created resource.B.C. Open Textbook Collection: Engineering (Various CC licences)

A collection of open textbooks on different topics in engineering.

Beyond Lean: Simulation in Practice (CC BY-NC-SA)

The fundamental goal of this text is to show how discrete event simulation can be used in addition to lean thinking to achieve greater benefits in system improvement than with lean alone. Realizing this goal requires learning the problems that simulation solves as well as the methods required to solve them. The problems that simulation solves are captured in a collection of case studies. These studies serve as metaphors for industrial problems that are commonly addressed using lean and simulation.

Engineering: An Introduction for High School (CC BY-NC)

An online textbook written for students in high school. The text was collaboratively written by university engineering and education faculty members at Arizona State University. The text currently has four content chapters that cover the nature of engineering, engineering and society, engineering design, and the connection between engineering, science, and mathematics.

Engineering LibreTexts Library (CC BY-NC-SA)

A collection of open textbooks, assignments, and other educational resources related to engineering.

Introduction to Linear, Time-Invariant, Dynamic Systems for Students of Engineering (CC BY-NC)

This text covers the ODEs and behaviors of first-order and second-order dynamic systems; the ODEs and behaviors of mechanical systems having two degrees of freedom, i.e., fourth-order systems; classical feedback control; the basic features of proportional, in­tegral, and derivative types of classical control; and methods for analyzing the stability of classical control systems.

Linear Algebra: A Course for Physicists and Engineers (CC BY-NC-ND)

This open textbook is meant for courses on space and atmospheric science, remote sensing, geographic information systems, meteorology, climate and satellite communications at UN-affiliated regional centres, various applications of the formal theory are discussed as well. These include differential equations, statistics, optimization and some engineering-motivated problems in physics.

Notes on Diffy Qs: Differential Equations for Engineers (CC BY-NC-SA)

A first course on differential equations, aimed at engineering students. The prerequisite for the course is the basic calculus sequence.

Structural Analysis (CC BY-NC-ND)

This textbook is designed for upper-level undergraduates studying civil engineering, construction engineering and management, and architecture. It is also useful for construction professionals seeking licensure in their field of practice.

Technical Project Management in Living and Geometric Order – Third Edition (CC BY)

This book is the result of a collaboration among the instructors responsible for Technical Project Management, one of the ten required classes in the Master of Engineering Management (MEM) program at the University of Wisconsin-Madison. This class is designed to help students build on their past experiences and develop effective strategies for managing complex technical projects, with an emphasis on applying project management concepts to real-world problems.


Practical Engineering Videos (CC YouTube Licence)

A collection of engineering videos created by Grady Hillhouse, a professional civil engineer. His goal for Practical Engineering is to increase exposure and interest in the field of engineering through the use of practical examples.

Engineering Technology Simulation Learning Videos (CC YouTube Licence)

Over 100+ quick microlearning videos on various Engineering Technology topics including automation, electrical, motor control, process control, fluid power, industrial robotics and more! The videos are short and are meant to be used in various classroom learning situations.
