New Thesis Formatting guide has been approved for 2016:

During the transition period of Spring 2016 and Summer 2016 semesters, manuscripts using either the old 2011 formatting rules or the new 2016 formatting rules will be acceptable.

The new rules for 2016 should be adhered to completely or the old rules for 2011 should be adhered to completely; that is, rules from the 2011 and 2016 rule books cannot be mixed.

Beginning with Fall 2016 semester, only formatting using the 2016 rules will be accepted.



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
