Engineering applies science and mathematics to solve practical problems from everyday life. Engineering uses physics, chemistry, materials science, mechanics, thermodynamics, systems analysis and mathematics to create a new and optimal solution. 

This guide presents different tools available to engineers: books, articles, and handbooks and encyclopaedias.  Other tools will be added later.
