Engineering Technology Simulations (CC BY)

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


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 (Licences vary)

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


B.C. Open Textbook Collection: Engineering This is a Canadian created resource(Various CC Licences)

A collection of open textbooks on different topics in engineering.

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.

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.


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.
