The Internet is loaded with many good (and some not-so-good) resources for the undergraduate engineering student.  This page provides a few good sites that are consistent with the technical level of typical undergraduate courses and are complementary to the material on this site.  Also, the sites provide a wide coverage of an important topic; citations to presentations of narrow, important topics are provided in the textbook.
