This is a collection of a number of resources that are useful for students of engineering as well as those curious to connect with the ways that engineers, designers, innovators, and entrepreneurs think and work.

The Worthwhile Content spreadsheet is a collection of links to books, podcasts, TV Shows, and Movies that are highly recommended as resources for up and coming engineering minds. This content will eventually be brought over to a more web-friendly format and posted on this site.

The Films for (future) Engineers list on IMDB is... "A collection (in no particular order) of horizon-expanding films for (future) engineers around the globe.

Titles range from the artistic to sci-fi, from comedies that shine light on humanity's oddities and absurdities to edge-of-seat thrillers and future dystopias. Some are here purely as sources of cultural references, and others are on the list for their cult status or abrasive qualities that help to round off sharp edges. Each is entertaining in its own way, but the larger goal is to collect a cross-section of programs that support critical thinking, puzzling together of clues, projecting into the unknown, and satisfying the sometimes peculiar and far-reaching curiosities of engineers.

The list intentionally includes a minimal number of fantasy, super-hero, and animated titles, as it's very likely those titles are well-known to many already due to the tireless efforts of the global hype machine. The list is US-centric but with an ever-increasing number of international titles."
