Accelerated Path to MS-CES at Sonoma State University
As you know, the Department has been working tirelessly to offer an accelerated path to the Master of Science (M.S.) in Computer and Engineering Science at Sonoma State University. We are excited to let you know that we have produced a pathway to allow EE undergraduate students to transfer and count TWO 400-level undergraduate EE courses towards completing MS-CES program degree requirements. Thus, interested students can potentially complete the MS-CES program requirements (the remaining 26 units) in one year beyond receiving their B.S degree in EE. Please review the link above and contact Dr. Farahmand or Dr. Shrestha in case you have any questions.
Concerned about Fall Semester?
ALL EE/ES (Engineering) courses for Fall 2020 will be online and delivered via Zoom. Students enrolled in engineering laboratory courses, as in the previous semesters, are required to purchase their own parts and components. For more details about each laboratory course, please contact the appropriate lab instructor.
Need help with your reports?
The SSU Writing Center provides the university community with personalized support for nearly any writing task. For more information see Writing Resources. We highly encourage all Senior students to share their reports with the writing center for personalized support before submitting them. MS-CES students are also highly encouraged to take advantage of the recourses at the writing center before submitting their thesis or project reports.
Interested in doing an extra project or conducting research while you are away from campus?
Unfortunately, we are not sure how the engineering summer research could be carried out. However, we highly encourage all EE/MS-CES students to stay in touch with the engineering faculty and consider getting engaged in doing a project or work on a research topic. Email your advisors and ask them if they have any project ideas that you can get involved in.
