Amazon Launches ‘Engineering Bookstore’ on its Platform

The e-commerce giant Amazon has launched a new shopping tool known as “Engineering bookstore” for the Indian customers. As part of this, the company is providing a search tool through which the engineering students can search for textbooks, reference books and study materials.

To make use of this particular tool, the customers are required to select their university and department and Amazon will streamline a list of suggested books for them that they can purchase.

Amazon claims that it provides thousands of books in this segment, in English and also in various Indian regional languages such as Hindi, Marathi, Tamil, Telugu, Malayalam, Oriya and Gujarati. Books in foreign languages such as Spanish, Chinese, German and Italian among others are also available.

These books can also be ordered in the cash-on-delivery mode of payment as well.

The universities that are listed in Amazon’s Engineering Bookstore are Acharya Nagarjuna University, Anna University, Biju Patnaik University of Technology, Chaudhary Charan Singh University, Dr. Babasaheb Ambedkar University, Gautam Buddh Technical University, Gujarat Technological University, Guru Gobind Singh Indraprastha University, JNTU Hyderabad, JNTU Kakinada, Kerala University, Mahamaya Technical University, Manipal University, Manipal University Jaipur, Mumbai University, Pune University, Punjab Technical University, Rajasthan Technical University, Rajiv Gandhi Technical University, SRM Engineering College, Uttarakhand Technical University, Uttar Pradesh Technical University, Vishveswaraiah Technological University and West Bengal Technical University.

When the company initiated its business, it started with books, and it seems that Amazon is going back to its roots. Initially, it started selling just books but gradually it excelled in all the other segments as well. This move will assist the engineering students in their studies and various other aspects.
