About The Efficient Engineer

Traditional teaching methods for civil and mechanical engineering can often feel inefficient, dry, repetitive and, to be honest, sometimes just plain boring.

The engineering world is packed full of concepts which are best understood when explained in a visual way. This makes animation a very powerful but underutilised medium for teaching engineering.

The goal of the Efficient Engineer channel is to produce high quality animated videos which cover the technical aspects of civil and mechanical engineering in an entertaining and visually appealing way.

There is no shortage of subjects to cover. So far I have produced videos related to:
  • Statics
  • Mechanics of materials
  • Material properties
  • Manufacturing

But there are so many other topics I would like to explore, including:

  • Dynamics
  • Fluid mechanics
  • Thermodynamics
  • Material science
  • FEA and CFD
  • Turbomachinery
  • Renewable energy
  • And many, many more

Countless hours are poured into making each video as useful and easy to understand as possible. Animation is a slooooow process! Your patronage will help keep this project alive. Additional funding will allow me to produce more videos, and to cover a wider range of topics than I would otherwise have been able to. Your support may also allow me to bring additional people on board to help with the creation process.

What’s in it for you?!

As well as supporting the project, as a patron you will get early access to video scripts and audio, and sneak peeks of stills and clips from upcoming videos.

You will also be able to contribute to discussions about future topics you would like to see covered, and have input into the overall direction of the channel.

For the Level 2 and Level 3 tiers I will also provide insight into my workflow, and share some of the tools and techniques I use to create the videos. And you'll get access to exclusive one page summary sheets that summarise the key points of my videos (there are currently sheets available for 6 videos, but I'm working on more).
