Purpose of Collection:

The Engineering collection at MacOdrum Library supports the research activities of faculty, students and staff and the instructional requirements of undergraduate and graduate programs. Engineering is an interdisciplinary area of studies within the Faculty of Engineering and Design, including Civil, Mechanical, Aerospace & Electrical Engineering. As such, the collection also provides support for, and draws from teaching and research in a wide variety of related fields such as Computer Science, Mathematics & Statistics and Physics.

For concrete examples of our collections in action, please visit example subject guides including: Aerospace Engineering, Biomedical Engineering, Civil Engineering, Electronics Engineering, Computer Systems Engineering, Mechanical and Aerospace Engineering, or Systems and Computer Engineering.
