Mechanical Engineering Videos and Software

Download research-related videos and shareware to view them.

Download a video player

If you do not have a video player, the links in the sidebar are for an open source program called VLC, which will play almost any type of video. On the bottom of the main VLC page are links to many different operating systems (mainly flavors of Unix) and versions for older software, as well as the Mac and PC links listed in this menu. Simply download the correct one and install it on your harddrive.

To use VLC, open the program, and navigate to the top bar menu and select "File." Then select "Open File" from the pulldown menu." The video will open immediately. This program is not needed to view Youtube videos, which require Shockwave to be installed.

Undergrads discuss teaching eningeering in 13 videos linked below.

In the winter of 2010, Dr. Don Berry, a former research scientist at The University of Texas at Austin and new lecturer in the Mechanical Engineering department and Carol Grosvenor, the webmaster, decided to hold a small focus group with several ME students in the hope of gaining insight into what the students need in engineering professors. They wrote a series of questions for the students to answer and filmed the meeting. The result is 13 video segments that address different aspects of teaching engineering. The videos do not need to be viewed in any particular order. The department does not condone or endorse their opinions expressed in this video. These are the personal opinions of the students.
