Engineers would be the first to admit the course is very rigorous and tasking whether at the undergraduate or postgraduate levels. That should be expected as engineers provide very important services to the community.
Engineering is one of the programs that would lead to a career that is always in demand. As society expands and grows, they would be needed to design and build things across several sectors of the society.
The apps below are top-rated apps to help students while they are studying for their important degree. And the good thing is, that they are mostly free or very cheap.
However, they are not a substitute for reading and studying hard. Let’s have a look at some of them.
This top-rated app is a must for every engineering student who seeks knowledge in various aspects of engineering. People who know this app nicknamed it the ‘Wikipedia of engineering.’ You know what that means.
It is able to answer any general or specific engineering query in any field of engineering. It answers questions by searching its huge database (and external sites too) for the right answer. And for references, it provides external links to the sites it got the solution from.
For about $3, the app could be downloaded from Play Store, Microsoft store, and iTunes.
Developed initially for only Android devices, this app used for sketching accurate graphs on your device is now also available for iOS and Windows phones.
This calculator emulator is efficient in creating Texas instruments graphs on the go. Which means you have a cool program that could easily create accurate, complicated graphs for you at the tips of your fingers.
This app has many uses, not just for engineering students. It is a scanning app that would help you digitalized your documents for easy referencing later.
It uses the camera of your device to take a picture of the documents. Then you can store the document in any format you need whether it is Word, Pdf or JPG. This makes the files easier to share via emails, WhatsApp or on social media.

As the name suggests, it converts units. This complete converter supports the conversion of length, electric charge, energy and different S. I units.
Despite its versatility, the app is extremely easy to use. Just input your figures in the box provided and indicate to which unit you want it converted. Then allow the app to work its magic.
The is free and is available on all major platforms.
The developers of this app had electronic and electrical engineering students in mind when they designed the app. The app is a sort of database for all electronic tools.
Students and engineers wishing to learn how to use specific tools and how to solve some engineering issues can access the database for solutions.
There are two versions of the app, the free Electrodroid and the paid version known as Electrodroid Pro. The major differences between the two is the ads that appear on the free version. So of you want an ads-free experience, you can obtain the Pro version.
The app is available on all platforms.
These are just five apps every engineering student must have on their devices. There are more apps out there for sure. You can share with us the apps you found useful to you in your engineering studies in the comments section.
