In this digital age, search engines has massively reduced the time required to reach information from a distant place. Never in human history has such capability been offered to us. Though a force for good, certain bias and policies within organisations offering this service might indeed affect engineering pedagogy. A review of two of the search providers show some interesting trends. The most popular of these providers seem to have high level of flexibility within its user policy. However, there are a number of people speaking up about it’s political and racial bias claiming some of it’s result are based on the personal preference of the provider. There seem to also be a battle between two of the providers studied with one claiming the other simply copied its own search results. Also, a provider seem to contradict its own terms and conditions by directing users to inappropriate content. It is not immediately evident what effects this might have on the delivery of engineering pedagogy. However, one might reason the bias within these organisations could indeed limit access to state of the art engineering information. The principles of engineering are continuously being reviewed, as such it is probably best to engage search operations free of bias. For example in manufacturing, 3D printing is evolving at a fast pace with new principles emerging for the exploration of this technology. It would be highly beneficial for lecturers and students to catch up with this, a biased search engine might not help. Parent organisations offering the searching service are progressively removing the biases. While we wait for the perfect engine, it is probably best we compare results from numerous engines when seeking engineering information.
