Engineers of every discipline face new challenges in the modern workplace, whether by keeping pace with rapidly developing technology, or accessing essential software while working in the field. Besides calling on knowledge and experience to get the job done, engineers rely on a host of resources and tools that, thanks to the development of mobile applications, are becoming increasingly accessible from handheld devices.

If you are looking for innovative solutions to save time and make your job easier, consider these top mobile apps designed with engineers in mind.

Categorized for engineers working in chemical, civil, electrical, environmental, or mechanical fields, this app contains more than 650 (and counting) of the complex formulas that engineers are most likely to require. With Engineering Pro, making calculations and applying conversion formulas is as simple as slipping out your smartphone - plus, you can even save favorites for quick access, as well as share results instantly via email.
