Welcome to the Engineering subject page.  This guide highlights the key resources for your subject area, and the key services and facilities available from the Library.

Getting started

All required reading for your modules should be available from your online reading lists. In addition to prescribed reading, when doing your own research ‘beyond your reading list’, LibrarySearch is a quick and easy way to simultaneously search for academic content across a number of different sources. If you get stuck, contact your Academic Librarian.
