Study Topics

Are you aware of every sub-discipline in the category of engineering technology? Perhaps not.


You might discover something very exciting that you didn't know existed!


Aside from their specialties, there are four areas of study that are critical for today's engineers and engineering technologists:

  1. Mathematics
  2. Technical Communication
  3. Engineering Mechanics
  4. Engineering Chemistry

Overview of Engineering



Note: Some of these tutorials might require a PDF reader. If you do not have an the Adobe Acrobat Reader installed on your device, you can download a free copy here. Many also require the Google Play app for mobile devices.

Energy Conversion and General Energy Analysis

Statics of Particles

Kinetics of Particles: Newton's Second Law








The conventional categories and names of engineering professions are the same as those used for describing college courses and majors.  What does a chemical engineer study? Chemical engineering, of course.  Table 1 lists the major engineering college majors and careers.  The red checkmarks in the Free-Ed column takes you to the corresponding resources.
