The engineering collection supports teaching, learning, and research through the Ph.D. level in all aspects of engineering supported by the Cockrell School of Engineering.  This includes the departments of:

  • Aerospace and Engineering Mechanics
  • Architectural, Environmental and Civil
  • Biomedical Engineering
  • Chemical Engineering
  • Electrical and Computer
  • Mechanical,  Materials Science
  • Petroleum and Geosystems

Also included are the special program areas of transportation, nuclear engineering and operations research and the organized research institutes.

While concern for these fields is centered in the Cockrell School of Engineering, other schools and departments have interest in specific areas such as students of chemistry in chemical engineering, architecture in architectural engineering, community and regional planning in transportation engineering, and astronomy in orbital mechanics.

English is the primary language of collection, with a focus on studies concerning the United States and Western Europe. The interdisciplinary nature of engineering requires several subject specialist librarians to work together to provide appropriate coverage, particularly in the chemistry, computer science, biological sciences and physics.  

Electronic and print format materials are collected to meet the needs of users. Periodicals and products of mainstream U.S. publishers are collected in electronic format, when available.
