Google Scholar contains bibliographic records for a huge range of information sources across the full spectrum of subjects, including those for engineering and mathematical subjects.
There is no fulltext in this database, only bibliographic information and sometimes links to an external website where you may, or may not, be able to get the fulltext of the information source through Oxford Brookes University subscriptions.
Google Scholar does not have the advanced features of some bibliographic databases (like Web of Knowledge) so you may want to use the Advanced Scholar Search to restrict your results to the information sources that are most relevant to your topic.
