In need of some inspiration when it comes to your classroom and homework? We’ve put together a list of some of the best engineering apps for Android that are available in the Google Play Store. From research resources to challenging games that put lessons into practice, you’ll find an app for that.

  1. Basic Engineering Dictionary

It’s a powerful thing, to have access to all the equations, terms, formulas and facts needed for engineering. This app gives your students exactly that, allowing them to really get to grips with the basics and advance their studies.


  1. Graphing Calculator

This app is more than just a calculator. It has a wide range of features that are found on the best scientific, graphing, fraction, algebra and matrix calculators. It also runs probabilities and statistics for you.


  1. Engineering Unit Converter

Your students will now have the ability to convert units in a wide range of categories. This will allow them to get a greater understanding of the world around them, and not be confused when people on the other side of the world use a different unit of measurement.


  1. Mechanical Engineering One

The simple interface on this app belies just how much it can really do for your students in their engineering courses. It has been designed by an engineer and includes a range of features for everyday use.

  1. Build a Bridge

It’s won the Most Innovative Game award in the Google Play Store, and offers many challenges to young and old. You get to plan your bridge, choose your construction materials and then build it. After that, you switch to 3D mode and see if the bridge will hold while a car drives over it.


Don’t forget your MDM

No fleet of devices in a school is complete without Mobile Device Management (MDM). The Mobile Guardian solution offers you MDM tools, web-filtering and linked parental controls on Android.
