This guide is designed to provide a starting point for undergraduates, graduates and faculty research in all the disciplines in engineering focusing on CSULB resources and those that are freely available on the Internet. Please note that Computer Science has its own guide.
The Antelope Valley Program has its own guide.
Please join us for one of these sessions:
September 19 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Engineering Technology ET 229
September 25 4:30 p.m. to 6 p.m. Peterson Hall PH1 219
The Format Evaluator in the Thesis and Dissertation Office will provide an overview of the submission and evaluation processes, along with outlining important deadlines, university formatting, and publishing requirements for your thesis.
Reservations not required
Here is a link to the powerpoint used in the Engineering Thesis Workshops in case you cannot attend.
Citation Styles in Engineering
There is no standard citation style that covers the whole of engineering and each of the disciplines within engineerong 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.
