The application process and requirements are explained in detail at gradadmissions.stanford.edu

Recommendations

RECOMMENDED PREPARATION

Freshman
Students who plan to enter Stanford as freshmen and intend to major in engineering should take the highest level of mathematics offered in high school. (See the "AP Credit" section of this bulletin for information on advanced placement in mathematics.) High school courses in physics and chemistry are strongly recommended, but not required. Additional elective course work in the humanities and social sciences is also recommended.

Transfer Students
Students who do the early part of their college work elsewhere and then transfer to Stanford to complete their engineering programs should follow an engineering or pre-engineering program at the first school, selecting insofar as possible courses applicable to the requirements of the School of Engineering, that is, courses comparable to those mentioned under the Majors tab. In addition, students should work toward completing the equivalent of Stanford's foreign language requirement and as many of the University's General Education Requirements (GERs) as possible before transferring. Some transfer students may require more than four years (in total) to obtain the B.S. degree. However, Stanford affords great flexibility in planning and scheduling individual programs, which makes it possible for transfer students, who have wide variations in preparation, to plan full programs for each quarter and to progress toward graduation without undue delay.

Transfer credit is given for courses taken elsewhere whenever the courses are equivalent or substantially similar to Stanford courses in scope and rigor. The policy of the School of Engineering is to study each transfer student's preparation and make a reasonable evaluation of the courses taken prior to transfer by means of a petition process. Inquiries may be addressed to the Office of Student Affairs in 135 Huang Engineering Center. For more information, see the transfer credit section of the Handbook for Undergraduate Engineering Programs at http://ughb.stanford.edu.

College Description

Engineering College Description and Special Characteristics

Stanford Engineering has been at the forefront of innovation for nearly a century, creating pivotal technologies that have transformed the worlds of information technology, communications, health care, energy, business and beyond.

The school’s faculty, students and alumni have established thousands of companies and laid the technological and business foundations for Silicon Valley. Today, the school continues to seek solutions to important global problems and educate leaders who will make the world a better place.

Our mission is to seek solutions to important global problems and educate leaders who will make the world a better place by using the power of engineering principles, techniques and systems. We believe it is essential to educate engineers who possess not only deep technical excellence, but the creativity, cultural awareness and entrepreneurial skills that come from exposure to the liberal arts, business, medicine and other disciplines that are an integral part of the Stanford experience.

Our key goals are to:

Conduct curiosity-driven and problem-driven research that generates new knowledge and produces discoveries that provide the foundations for future engineered systems

Deliver world-class, research-based education to students and broad-based training to leaders in academia, industry and society.

Drive technology transfer to Silicon Valley and beyond with deeply and broadly educated people and transformative ideas that will improve our society and our world.

We also know that the engineering school of the future will look very different from what it looks like today. So, in 2015, we embarked on what we believe was the first school-wide strategic planning process. We brought together a wide range of stakeholders, including mid-career faculty, students and staff, to address two fundamental questions: In what areas can the School of Engineering make significant world‐changing impact, and how should the school be configured to address the major opportunities and challenges of the future?

One key output of the process is a set of 10 broad, aspirational questions on areas where the School of Engineering would like to have an impact in 20 years. The committee also returned with a series of recommendations that outlined actions across three key areas " research, education and culture " where the school can deploy resources and create the conditions for Stanford Engineering to have significant impact on those challenges.

Admissions/Transfers

Undergraduate Admission to the College of Engineering

Undergraduate admission
- A holistic review process evaluates academic excellence, intellectual vitality and personal context of each applicant.
- Restrictive Early Action application deadline is November 1.
- Regular Decision application deadline is January 3.


Freshman are admitted to the university, not to the School of Engineering.

Applicants are required to complete either the SAT or ACT plus writing and it is strongly recommended that students also take at least two SAT Subjects Tests. We recommend Math Level 2 as one of these tests; the other test can be in any subject of your choosing.

Applicants need two letters of recommendation from high school teachers and a secondary school report from a counselor or other school administrator.

The application includes one essay from the Common Application and short essays or questions from the Stanford Supplement.

For detailed requirements and advice, see admissions.stanford.edu.

Undergraduate Admission to an Engineering Department

Students declare majors by the end of the second year. All majors are open to all undergrads. There are no special admissions requirements for engineering.

Entrance Requirements for Foreign Students

The application process is the same for all applicants regardless of citizenship or country of residence.

The Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL), although not required, is strongly recommended for non-native speakers of English.

Entrance Requirements for Non-Resident Students

The application process is the same for all applicants regardless of citizenship or country of residence.

Residency Requirements

Transfer students are required to complete at least two years of full time enrollment at Stanford in order to obtain a bachelor's degree.

Admissions Requirements for Transfer Students

Transfer students are admitted to the university. They may declare any major. Transfer applicants have the same test requirements and essays as freshmen applicants. The two letters normally come from college instructors, rather than high school teachers.

Number of Transfer Students from:

A two-year community junior college where they were full-time students: 25
A four-year college or university where they were full-time students: 14

The following text was offered to each school as a guideline for the calculation of externally-funded research expenditures:

Include all expenditures associated with grants and contracts specifically budgeted for externally sponsored research and associated programs and expenditures associated with all gifts auditably used for research. Include expended funds provided by the following external sources:

  1. Federal Government
  2. State Government
  3. Foreign Governments
  4. Industry
  5. Non-Profit Organizations (e.g. foundations)
  6. Individuals
  7. Local Government

The expenditures reported should be only those funds provided by organizations, agencies, and individuals external to the institution. Cost sharing/matching funds should be included only if provided from sources external to the institution.

Only State government funds that were obtained competitively or as matching funds associated with other externally funded programs should be included. State funds that are part of the normal operating budget should not be included regardless of purpose.

For all joint or contracted projects or sub-projects, only the portion of the center research performed by faculty, staff, and students of the affiliated engineering school should be credited to that school. Expenditures for capital costs of research laboratory building construction should not be included.

Expenditures for research laboratory renovations should not be included unless the renovation funds expended came from grants and contracts expressly intended for the direct support of engineering research.

Any portion of academic year and/or summer salary for any researcher that is not derived from external research grants or contracts should not be counted.

Total #: Report total number of individual grants, not the total dollar amount of the expenditures.

Expenditures: Report actual expenditures (as opposed to authorization amounts) in U.S. dollars.

Time frame for expenditures: Report expenditures for your current fiscal year.

Research centers listed as "WITHIN an engineering department" on the Research Centers page (screen 7) of the College of Engineering Profile, will not have their expenditures added to the school's total research expenditures. Such expenditures can be included in the department total, while still being listed for the appropriate center. This allows users to list the expenditures in two areas without double-counting.

Research Description

Research Description By Graduate Engineering Department

Aeronautics & Astronautics

Computational-Based Design

During the last two decades, giant strides have been achieved in many aspects of computational aerospace engineering. Higher-fidelity mathematical models, better approximation methods, and faster solution algorithms have been developed for aerodynamic, structural, aeroacoustic, aeroelastic, aerothermal, and control applications, among others. Computing speed barriers have been shattered by hardware manufacturers and parallel cluster computing has become ubiquitous. As a result, numerical simulation has increasingly complemented, and in some cases replaced, physical tests to enhance the reliability of engineering designs, improve the productivity of engineers, reduce design-cycle time, and enhance system performance.

The Department has a strong presence in computational aerospace engineering and an innovative research program in Computational-Based Design. This program, which is carried out primarily in the Aerospace Computing Laboratory , the Aerospace Design Lab, and the FRG, focuses on multidisciplinary frameworks that can link different physics pertaining to aeronautics and astronautics, multiscale computational approaches that can deal with large ranges of time and spatial scales, high-fidelity computational schemes that can enable predictive simulations, optimization algorithms that can handle complex integrated systems, and model-reduction methods that can integrate computation with design.

Research Description By Engineering Research Center

Aero Fluid Mechanics Laboratory

For basic studies of fluid flows and combustion, facilities include a low-speed wind tunnel, a high-pressure shock tube, and a small hybrid rocket motor. Instrumentation includes optics and electronics for velocity- and laser- induced fluorescence measurements and local workstations for data analysis. Current research involves the study of combustion at a liquid-gas interface.

Aerospace Design Laboratory (ADL)

The Aerospace Computing Lab (ACL) focuses on the development and application of numerical techniques in the design of aerospace products.

The basis of these numerical techniques lies in the application of multigrid methods pioneered by Professor Jameson in the past decades. These methods are being used to solve mathematical models of fluid flow ranging from the linearized potential flow equations to the fully non-linear unsteady Navier-Stokes equations. The computational efficiency of these techniques has made them the de facto standard in the aerospace industry. These codes have been used to analyze and design vehicles ranging from sailboats to commercial airliners.

Aerospace Robotics Laboratory (ARL)

ARL creates experimental facilities for developing very advanced human/robot systems, with the human at the discovery and strategic command level and the (physical) robotic system doing real-time planning and execution of the strategy. Each PhD candidate conceives and builds a new total system for carrying out an object-motion mission: versatile industrial automation, free-flying space robots, free-swimming underwater robots, autonomous purely-GPS-controlled helicopters, or very flexible multi-link space arms. Each new idea is carried through to full experimental proof of concept. Air-cushion-floating two-cooperating-arm free flyers perform (in 2D) exactly as they would in space. High precision and speed of large, very flexible manipulators are achieved via quick minis at their end points. They can handle payload spacecraft having unknown dynamics. The free flyers are controlled also by GPS (alone!), both indoors and out; and they now do formation flying, as will future helicopters. New research will develop control of autonomous planetary rovers using local GPS pseudo-satellites. ARL's deep underwater work is done in close cooperation with the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute.

They have facilitated access to the Blume Center's faculty and staff and are encouraged to discuss with them critical issues of mutual concern. Affiliates provide a very valuable perspective to the research and development conducted at the Blume Center, and their participation in these activities is essential to the program's goals. Affiliates also receive copies of publications and other material that is available from the Blume Center. Corporations, consulting firms, and individual professionals can become members of the Blume Center Professional Affiliate Program by contributing financially.

Brains in Silicon

Alternative hardware solutions are being explored to satisfy brain simulations' voracious appetite for computational resources. In these simulations, the computer evaluates mathematical formulae that describe the behavior of ion-channels, pore-forming protein molecules that stud a neuron's membrane. In this way, researchers codify their hypotheses about how the cognitive behavior they are studying arises from the brain's physiology (a neuronal type's ion-channel repertoire) and anatomy (a neural network's synaptic organization). The number of evaluations explodes when the model is scaled up to replicate organism-level behavior. Consequently, researchers cannot link cognitive behavior to well-understood cellular-level processes.

Brown Institute for Media Innovation

"Established in 2012, the David and Helen Gurley Brown Institute is a collaboration between Columbia University and Stanford University, designed to encourage and support new endeavors in media innovation. At Stanford, the primary focus is on media technology, and the Institute is anchored in the School of Engineering. At Columbia, the primary focus is on content, and the Institute is anchored in the Graduate School of Journalism.

To achieve its goals, the Brown Institute operates as an academic venture forum. Once per year, we invite the Columbia and Stanford communities to submit proposals for Magic Grants. We look for ideas that are original and have the potential to bring true innovation in the media world. Typically, a Magic Grant supports a small team of graduate or postgraduate students who are expected to demonstrate the relevance and viability of their ideas by implementing a prototype or creating an innovative media product. Successful projects might continue as business ventures outside the universities.

The Institute also awards fellowships; Brown Fellows are postgraduate or graduate students who support the Institute together with their peers and the directors, while working towards engineering prototypes, creating innovative media products, or carrying out related research. Brown Fellows are appointed annually for the academic year; their terms can be renewed."

Open Networking Research Center

The mission of ONRC is to create a comprehensive intellectual framework for SDN and develop, deploy and support open source SDN tools and platforms to "open up the Internet infrastructure for innovations" and enable the larger network industry to build networks that offer increasingly sophisticated functionality yet are cheaper and simpler to manage than current networks.

In contrast to most areas of technology, the networking industry has been relatively stagnant over the past twenty years and the basic networking paradigm has remained largely unchanged. As a result, networks are still far too expensive, complex, and difficult to manage. This unfortunate state-of-affairs is about to change because of two revolutionary developments: (1) the emergence of sophisticated, commodity networking hardware from merchant silicon vendors, and (2) the advent of a radically new approach called software-defined networking (SDN). SDN promises to make all networks cheaper, simpler, and easier to manage; the effects of SDN will be felt in the data-center, the enterprise wiring closet, the WAN, cellular networks and in the home. SDN originated from research at Stanford and Berkeley, and has now been endorsed by over 65 companies through their membership in the Open Networking Foundation (ONF).

This enables us to investigate in details, both numerically and experimentally, simpler unit-problem systems, advance their understanding, construct and validate physics-based models that accurately describe and predict them. All these activities are developed within a UQ framework that enables us to integrate and relate individual efforts. Each of our different topical groups focus on one such elemental system. They all consist of a modeling activity within our QMU framework with parallel and simultaneous experimental support. The modeling aspects concentrate on developing and refining models to be used in our overall QMU activity, while the experimental activities focus on understanding the physics of the problem and providing opportunities for model validation. They are also sensitive to quantify the uncertainties in the work, and to identify and resolve sources of possible inconsistency between corresponding experimental and numerical efforts for a more systematic comparison of the results.

Reflecting a substantial interest in computing environmental flows, the EFML is home to the Peter A. McCuen Environmental Computing Center, which houses a 320-core cluster.

The Loft

The inspiration for d.loft STEM is the "Design for the Other 90% Movement,” which consists of engineers, designers, scientists, technologists, architects, and mathematicians engaged in designing low-cost innovative solutions for large portion of the world’s population who do not have access to basic services and products.

The ME310 Design Team Development Loft

Students in ME310 take on real world design challenges brought forth by corporate partners. Unlike many other academic engineering projects, which require students to optimize one variable, students must design a complete system while being mindful of not only the primary function but also the usability, desirability, and societal implications. Throughout one academic year, student teams prototype and test many of their design concepts and in the end create a full proof-of-concept system that demonstrates their ideas.

Thermal & Fluid Sciences Affiliates (TFSA)

The TFSA Program is the industrial liaison program of the Flow Physics & Computational Engineering and Thermosciences Groups of the Mechanical Engineering Department. The program is administered at the faculty level and emphasizes person-to-person communications between Stanford faculty and the industrial representatives. This is the first point of contact for many companies that develop more extensive research collaborations with the faculty.
