Besides academic learning, there are thousands of ways, nowadays, to learn civil engineering related articles, new technology, and other related topics. Specially, after the corona pandemic is out, an online study has become more popular. Besides, various blogs and websites, YouTube has become one of the most preferable and important ways of learning things. Therefore, today I am going to share the top 20 YouTube channels for Civil Engineers.
Similar to websites, YouTube channels are growing at a rapid pace. One hour of video is uploaded every second on to YouTube. Understanding a concept becomes easier with visual aids like videos. Also, learning software has become more efficient since the advent of the Online Video Streaming Giant YouTube. The time wasted in searching for a good channel can be spent on something more productive or learning something from the same YouTube platform. So, to save your time, we have worked on YouTube in quest of great channels that serve Civil Engineering needs better and listed these Top 20 YouTube channels for Civil Engineers.
Why YouTube for Learning?
500 hours of video are uploaded, including our interest to YouTube every minute worldwide (Tubefilter, 2019). That’s 30,000 hours of video uploaded every hour. And 720,000 hours of video uploaded every day to YouTube. And this number is growing day by day. Wow. To put this into perspective, it would take you close to 82 years to watch the number of videos uploaded to YouTube in only an hour. That’s a lifetime of watching YouTube videos. Therefore, you can found hundreds of videos for learning online on YouTube.
