Engineering (Basic)

A introductory guide to engineering and technology resources. Directed primarily at engineering undergraduates in ASU101 and lower-level engineering courses.

Encyclopedias

The more you know about a topic, the better you'll be able to research it.  You'll know the appropriate terminology to use in the search, thereby retrieving more articles specifically on your topic and you'll recognize when an article meets your needs even if author doesn't describe the topic in the same way you do.

So, when starting to research an engineering topic, use one or more of these resources to get a summary of the topic and find out more about it.

The ASU Library acknowledges the twenty-two Native Nations that have inhabited this land for centuries. Arizona State University's four campuses are located in the Salt River Valley on ancestral territories of Indigenous peoples, including the Akimel O’odham (Pima) and Pee Posh (Maricopa) Indian Communities, whose care and keeping of these lands allows us to be here today. ASU Library acknowledges the sovereignty of these nations and seeks to foster an environment of success and possibility for Native American students and patrons. We are advocates for the incorporation of Indigenous knowledge systems and research methodologies within contemporary library practice. ASU Library welcomes members of the Akimel O’odham and Pee Posh, and all Native nations to the Library.
