Welcome ~ From the Editor

Welcome to the Engineering Portal on MERLOT. Here, you will find lots of resources on a wide variety of topics ranging from aerospace engineering to petroleum engineering to help you with your teaching and research.

As you scroll this page, you will find many Engineering resources.  This includes the most recently added Engineering material and members; journals and publications and Engineering education alerts and twitter feeds.  


Over 150 emeddable or downloadable 3D Simulations in the subject area of Automation, Electro/Mechanical, Process Control, and Renewable Energy.  Short 3-7 minute simulations that cover a range of engineering topics to help students understand conceptual engineering topics. 

Each video is hosted on Vimeo and can be played, embedded, or downloaded for use in the classroom or online.  Other option includes an embeddable HTML player created in Storyline with review questions for each simulation that reinforce the concepts learned. 

Made possible under a Department of Labor grant.  Extensive storyboard/ scripting work with instructors and industry experts to ensure content is accurate and up to date.
