Student Research and Scholarly Works

The department of Engineering Science strongly supports student research and student scholarly activities. Each semester, many of our EE students engage in a variety of funded and/or corporate sponsored projects. The results of these projects are often submitted to peer-reviewed conferences and journals. Below is a list of selected student Presentations, Posters, and Peer-Reviewed Publications accomplished by EE students at SSU.

Summer Research:

Every summer the Engineering department hosts a number of high school, undergraduate and graduate students from SSU and other institutions to engage in exciting and funded real-world research activities during summer. Summer research scholars are selected by faculty and receive a highly engaging mentoring experience. Participants in the program are expected to spend at least10 weeks working on their projects and present their results in poster, talks and presentation sessions at various conferences and even possibly peer-reviewed journals. To learn more about the summer research program at the engineering department at SSU, please contact Dr. Farid Farahmand (farid.farahmand at sonoma dot edu).

Research Laboratories:

Over the past several years the Advanced Internet Technology in the Interest of Society Laboratory (AITIS Lab) at Sonoma State University has enabled various research opportunities for both undergraduate and graduate students, establishing external collaboration opportunities, involving students in publications, and successfully obtaining research funding. AITIS Lab is currently very active in developing low-cost technologies focusing on environmental monitoring and bio-medical devices. For more information about current projects developed by students at AITIS Lab please refer to its web page.
