Use handbooks and reference books to find background information

Access one of the databases below to search the text of hundreds of  books simultaneously. Handbooks are an important specialized type of book used in all engineering disciplines. Handbooks provide information crucial to the engineering design process, such as: compilations of data, concise overviews of engineering topics, and formulas. Handbooks and other reference books are a good resource for background information. 

Career Resources

The societies and institutes listed below  provide career information, including job vacancies. Use these descriptions to get a sense of what certain types of engineers do, what their responsibilities are, and perhaps salaries.

Search scholarly Literature to find journal articles & conference papers

the databases below contain citations (descriptions) to millions of journal articles and conference papers - as well as other material. They do NOT contain full text. Use the "find text@TAMU" button connected to every citation for document retrieval options. Use the "Get it For Me" service to acquire anything not owned by the TAMU Libraries. Contact your librarian (Jane Stephens) for help.
