  • Additional Calculus for Engineers (ACE) | Engineering
    have to be enrolled in the regular section to be eligible for transfer to the ACE section The program works as follows If after consulting with your academic advisor you decide to enroll in Math 19 20 21 41 42 51 52 53 or CME 100 102 or 104 you will be eligible to enter a special section of the course Generally students in calculus are required to attend three one hour lectures and two one hour sections a week ACE students will attend the usual three one hour lectures but will attend two two hour sections and an additional one hour session for problem solving For this extra commitment ACE students receive an additional unit of academic credit 6 units instead of the normal 5 Doctoral students in mathematics lead the ACE sections Course assistants who are graduate students in engineering will work with you during the problem solving sessions and in special tutorial office hours Objective ACE is demanding and fast paced and designed to make optimal use of your study time The sections are structured so that you will do your work collaboratively solving the problem sets cooperatively while developing your own mastery of the material It is hoped that the group study habits you develop in ACE will serve you well in all of your courses at Stanford Research shows that students who study alone do dramatically less well in college than those who study collaboratively Moreover most engineering projects in industry and government are completed in teams Benefits At Stanford last year the majority of ACE students especially those who attended every lecture as well as discussion and problem solving sessions earned a grade of B or better in calculus More importantly our students acquired a deeper understanding of mathematics and its applications in science

  • Graduate Professional and Peer Advising (GP2A) | Engineering
    dinner lecture series Undergraduate and Graduate Advising This part of the program is multi tiered with each GP2A participant taking on different roles depending on their class level Level 1 Junior and senior undergraduates will have the opportunity to advise freshmen and sophomore undergraduates Level 2 Master s and Ph D students will have the opportunity to advise junior and senior undergraduate students Level 3 Senior Ph D students will have the opportunity to advise Master s and first year Ph D students Students advisees and student advisors can apply to participate in the GP2A Program via the online application below and will be paired with a student advisor and or advisee that best matches their academic extracurricular and professional interests Student Advisors are expected to meet with their advisees at least once a quarter one of which can be a sponsored lunch meeting to discuss academic and professional topics While one on one meetings are preferable an advisor with more than two advisees may wish to meet with his her advisees together Student Advisors are not expected to be able to provide advisees with the answers to all of their questions but rather act as a resource for their advisees The focus of these meetings should be on 1 course selection 2 internship and research opportunities 3 study methods 4 major minor or thesis selection and 5 graduate school advising In certain circumstances the EDP will assign graduate advisors to provide academic tutoring to undergraduates and Ph D students to fill in learning gaps for undergraduate or graduate students on a case by case basis Advising Lunch Accelerated Calculus for Engineers ACE Program Extension ACE students will also have the opportunity to engage in a similar advising session with their calculus Teaching and Course assistants Teaching and Course assistants for the ACE math series will be responsible for organizing a focused meal with their students in which mathematics course sequencing study habits and applications to engineering will be discussed The OSA EDP Purchasing Card PCard should be picked up from Ms Nan Aoki at Huang room 135 on the day of the lunch by the advisor before heading to the lunch Faculty Advising Lunches Some of the engineering diversity societies such as SBSE and SWE incorporate structured luncheons into their regular events in which a faculty member in one of the engineering departments meets with undergraduate society members and their advisors to discuss course sequencing research opportunities and other topics related to the major The main purpose of these luncheons is to allow students to have their questions regarding majors and research opportunities answered in a more intimate setting normally 5 to 15 students SSEA Faculty Lunch Model During the annual Stanford Summer Engineering Academy SSEA the GP2A Program extends to incoming freshmen participants who will be encouraged to organize luncheons or dinners with SSEA lecturing faculty from every STEM major in order to gain a better understanding of their prospective majors and the research opportunities available to them

  • Global Engineering Programs News
    What is your background in service learning and engineering and how does it link to your interest in Argentina I have used my engineering background to participate in engineering projects in Mexico Guatemala Mozambique and China All of these projects were aimed at improving living conditions of developing communities while also promoting local empowerment and ownership of projects I hope to continue devoting my background and efforts to provide opportunities for people by helping communities in the role that best suits the success of the project Having been born and raised in Peru I understand the urgency of the need for people to have secure and reliable basic resources This program focuses on what I believe in and allows students to learn about their strengths and weaknesses 4 What did you study for undergraduate and how is it different from the ME graduate program you are currently enrolled in I am in my 4th year of PhD in Mechanical Engineering at Stanford University I did my undergrad at Rutgers University in Mechanical Engineering The focus of my research is on the biomechanics of cardiovascular tissues with an emphasis on tissues with pathologies Parallel to my academic studies I have always been involved in service learning projects During my travels to Mexico Guatemala Mozambique and China I collaborated with fellow students from each country and worked on engineering problems with professional engineers 5 Could you give us some sense of where you see yourself in the future in terms of your career How does the program you are leading possibly link to your future career goals As I look to the future I hope to use my research and service experience to become a faculty member at a university doing both research and working on service projects with students I want to teach determination creativity hard work and perseverance to colleagues and students I will strive to provide educational opportunities for students like the ones I have been fortunate to have so that they can discover their own passions Being entrusted with the leadership role of the SSLP Argentina gives me the opportunity to use my engineering education and experience in service while also learning what it really takes to assemble a team to solve problems that affect many people in need Throughout my experiences in service projects I dealt not only with real technical aspects of engineering alongside professional engineers but also with the social political economic and cultural constraints involved in successfully implementing an engineering project This extraordinary opportunity will help me materialize something I have envisioned for many years which is that the world s problems are vast but if we combine forces and overcome our differences great things can be accomplished Student Lead Profile Tammy Chang Last fall Tammy Chang a PhD student in the Stanford Electrical Engineering Department was selected to be the student lead for our SETS program in China for summer 2016 GEP student interns had the opportunity to interview Tammy in order to
