Resources for General Engineering: Home

This guide introduces engineering students to the library and Internet resources available to them at UL Lafayette. It is specifically designed for students in the UL Lafayette College of Engineering.

Welcome to Engineering!

Engineering and technology affect the world around us in complex ways. Students in the University of Louisiana at Lafayette College of Engineering can be expected to take leadership positions in society, from building bridges to designing and developing large-scale multidisciplinary projects. The librarians at Edith Garland Dupré Library are eager to help prepare these students by providing them with the resources they need for their education.

This guide will give you access to online databases, journals, books and web resources that will hopefully help you with your research needs. Please see the Links to Engineering Guides box for other areas of engineering covered in UL Lafayette Guides.

Congratulations to the CAPE-2 satellite team!

On Tuesday, Nov. 19, 2013, a small satellite designed and built by UL Lafayette students was launched into space. The satellite, outfitted with deployable solar panels, is capable of converting speech to text, tweeting and sending emails. It was built by a team of students and advisors from the UL Lafayette Electrical/Computer Engineering Department.
