Abstract

Computer animation on personal computers (PC) is becoming increasingly popular as an educational teaching aid. With the increasing CPU power and high‐resolution graphics of PC, and the rapid evolution of animation softwares, engineering courses can be developed on the PC using computer animation. Many engineering systems and processes in the engineering courses can be animated to enhance learning by university undergraduates. These animation projects could be developed into engineering courseware on certain subjects or topics for effective teaching in classrooms, at home, or as computer‐aided laboratory lessons. Several types of animation software are introduced in this article.
