Abstract
Uncertainty is ubiquitous in engineering, but it is not taught in most of engineering courses. One of the major problems is the lack of proper teaching materials. The objective of this project is to create an Engineering Repository with teaching and learning materials so that they can be adopted in various engineering courses. We at first discuss the basics of uncertainty and the need of uncertainty education. We then report the current status of the development of the Engineering Repository and its use in classes of Dynamics and Probabilistic Engineering Design. Several examples of the Engineering Repository are also presented.
