About Engineering Village

Engineering Village takes engineering research to the next level with a comprehensive database that includes the most authoritative engineering resources available to answer today’s most timely questions—from theoretical to applied, and basic to complex.

Watch How Engineering Village Works

Whether it’s preparing for a paper, a grant or funding proposal, a request for new research allocations, a detailed patent application, or simply an interest in acquiring new engineering knowledge, Engineering Villages provides the most comprehensive information you need.

Elsevier's Engineering Village Compendex and Knovel databases will partner to launch a new game, the Engineering Academic Challenge, aimed to improve students understanding of technical concepts, critical thinking, cognitive monitoring and creative problem solving. The Engineering Academic Challenge will integrate both products for the very first time, which will produce the added challenge of identifying the appropriate database to efficiently solve a challenge question. Faculty and librarians can use the game to prepare students for skillful, efficient problem solving through game-based learning. The experiences outlined here, featuring Drexel University and the 2015 Knovel Academic Challenge, provide further evidence that game-based learning approach actively engages engineering students in applying core information literacy skills to 21st century engineering problems.
