Engineering - InTechOpen
Open access books in various subfields of Engineering. As these books are intended for scholars, some volumes may be more appropriate for graduate courses.
Engineering Technology: Simulations for Learning
"This website is a segment of a Department of Labor grant awarded to the Eastern Iowa Community Colleges (EICC) of Clinton, Muscatine, and Scott. This project seeks to provide a unique approach to learning about engineering technology."
Engineering Computations with Python
Created in Jupyter Notebooks, these modules' target audience is first-year engineering students, but the course would be equally useful to students in any science or technology field.
National Center for Case Study Teaching in Science
Case studies are a powerful pedagogical technique for teaching science. Cases can be used not only to teach scientific concepts but also process skills and critical thinking. Since many of the best cases are based on contemporary, and often contentious, science problems that students encounter in the news, the use of cases in the classroom makes science relevant.
Civil & Environmental Engineering
MIT OpenCourseWare - Civil & Environmental Engineering
Course outlines, syllabi, lesson plans, and assignments from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
Structural Analysis by Felix Udeyo is intended to teach students the methods and techniques for the analysis of structures. 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.
Sustainability: A Comprehensive Foundation
With “Sustainability: A Comprehensive Foundation”, first and second-year college students are introduced to this expanding new field, comprehensively exploring the essential concepts from every branch of knowledge – including engineering and the applied arts, natural and social sciences, and the humanities.
Spatial Thinking in Planning Practice: An Introduction to GIS
The goals of this textbook are to help students acquire the technical skills of using software and managing a database, and develop research skills of collecting data, analyzing information and presenting results.
Next Generation Infrastructures
Today’s infrastructure systems are rapidly changing, becoming more web-based, interconnected and transnational, while new technologies are on their way. This open course examines these challenges and includes case studies on sustainable energy, smart grids, and water scarcity.
Fundamentals of Transportation [Wikibooks]
Transportation moves people and goods from one place to another using a variety of vehicles across different infrastructure systems. This book is aimed at undergraduate civil engineering students, though the material may provide a useful review for practitioners.
Introduction to Structural Integrity
This short open course demonstrates how the study of safe design and the assessment of components and structures under load is of increasing importance in engineering design. The documents can be downloaded in multiple formats for use.
