Jocelyn is a transfer student studying Electrical Engineering with minors in Computer Science, Mathematics, and Professional Writing. Jocelyn has changed her major and career path several times before pursuing a software engineering career in Digital Signal Processing. Since Jocelyn plans to work in industry after graduation, she has tailored her undergraduate experience towards that goal by working part time both on- and off-campus, obtaining several internships, and enrolling in project based courses - building a DJ mixer with custom instruments in EEC105ABC EE-Emerge, an iOS app in ECS189E iOS Development, and an autonomous inspection robot for Lawrence Livermore National Laboratory in EEC193AB Independent Senior Design. Jocelyn plans to eventually obtain her Master's degree and is also available to share her experience in preparing for graduate school.

Faculty Advisors

The best resource for advice on career plans, choice of major, choice of elective courses and for the writing of letters of recommendation for prospective jobs or graduate school admission are faculty advisors. Any ECE faculty member may serve as your advisor; however we recommend selecting a faculty member whose research/specialty area align with your interests to get the most out of the meeting.
