Top Mechanical Engineering inspiration, Podcasts and Resources to Use in 2022



As you probably already know, engineers are often very curious people. Due to their skills and training, they are constantly willing to learn new and exciting things. Even though most of the time this can prove to be a difficult task (because of our busy schedules or lack of resources), there’s always room for proper resources to get our engineering inspiration.

That is why we gathered in today’s article a list of tech news, video collections and useful podcasts. Driving in your car or taking a break at work, these discussions, interviews, reviews or presentations among mechanical engineers are a great way to spend your time and increase your knowledge... or see things from a different perspective. Have a look at these top mechanical engineering resources (for 2022) that professional engineers and student engineers would surely benefit from!
