  • Applying to Stanford Engineering
    vary Please visit graduate admissions for further information Prospective graduate students are evaluated and admitted by each program The most important criterion for admission to a Stanford Engineering graduate program is merit superior academic achievement and the potential to make a contribution to technology business or society as a whole Financial Aid Graduate financial aid is based entirely on merit Fellowships and other forms of assistance are included in the department s offer of admission and no separate application is required or accepted The School of Engineering currently supports more than 180 engineering graduate financial aid funds and 65 70 engineering students receive the University s Stanford Graduate Fellowships each year Co Terminal Program Admission At Stanford undergraduate students can apply to study for a master s degree and complete their bachelor s degree in parallel Undergraduates apply directly to a Master s department for coterm admission Before that interested students can review the School of Engineering coterm information including some survey results from recent coterms and talk to faculty and staff about their options International Students Stanford s School of Engineering prides itself on the diversity of its programs and its people International students add to the intellectual rigor of the school and bring cultural diversity to its student life These students are not only a robust source of talent in the Silicon Valley and the United States as a whole but have the opportunity to fill leadership roles in their home countries as well International students earn approximately 40 percent of graduate degrees and 10 percent of undergraduate degrees conferred in the School of Engineering each year In the most recent academic year our graduates came from more than 70 countries The application process is the same for all applicants regardless of citiizenship or country of residence Several

  • Undergraduate Opportunities: Frequently asked questions | Engineering
    are in the Cardinal Recruiting database however If there is a particular company that you are interested in you can always look up information about jobs and internships on the company website or reach out to the company directly What are the opportunities for research The best way to get into research is probably through a summer research program that almost every department has For instance the Electrical Engineering department has REU Research Experience for Undergraduates and the Computer Science department has CURIS Undergraduate Research in Computer Science More information about those can be found on department websites Depending on your professor or project many of these summer research opportunities can be continued during the school year Alternatively there is always the classic way of reaching out to a professor that you would be interested in working with through email It helps if you can explain what aspects of their research you are interested in and why When can students start working in a lab Students can start working in a lab as soon as they would like and as soon as they find a professor that they can work with see What are the opportunities for research above It may not be recommended to start research the first quarter of your Stanford career however because you still want some time to adjust to college life college classes and to just enjoy meeting a lot of awesome people What are the sizes of classes The size of classes range from 700 students for the introductory Computer Science class to 10 for a more specialized upper level engineering course It is common for introductory courses to be much larger in size than upper level courses and for courses in more popular majors to also be larger than courses in less popular
