Citation Styles in Engineering

There is no standard citation style that covers the whole of engineering and each of the disciplines within engineering defaults to using the style used by their major professional association for their scholarly journals. LeHigh University maintains an excellent list of engineering citation styles:

 Here at CSULB, we have been using the APA for ENGR 101 and 102.

To find information on APA and other style guides, use CSULB's Style Manual and Citations Methods guide
