Engineering is a popular and useful major for members of Stanford's rowing team.
On morning drives from campus to the Stanford Rowing and Sailing Center, the topic of conversation among rowers is often about how to use fluid dynamics to make the blade of an oar move faster through the water and improve boat speed.
It may be surprising to some that 18- to 22-year-olds spend this time talking about fluid dynamics or discussing internship experience with doing impact testing on glass for tablets and the process of making renewable medical devices, as opposed to talking about pop culture.

Many high school students have zapped water with electricity to make hydrogen and oxygen. To turn that chemical process into a type of battery, researchers adapt ideas from oil refineries.
Chemical engineers at Stanford have designed a catalyst that could help produce vast quantities of pure hydrogen through electrolysis – the process of passing electricity through water to break hydrogen loose from oxygen in H2O.
Today, pure hydrogen, or H2, is a major commodity chemical that is generally derived from natural gas. Tens of millions of tons of hydrogen are produced each year; industrial hydrogen is important in petroleum refining and fertilizer production.

Device is used to monitor brain pressure in lab mice as prelude to possible use with human patients; future applications of this pressure-sensing technology could lead to touch-sensitive “skin” for prosthetic devices.
Stanford engineers have invented a wireless pressure sensor that has already been used to measure brain pressure in lab mice with brain injuries.
The underlying technology has such broad potential that it could one day be used to create skin-like materials that can sense pressure, leading to prosthetic devices with the electronic equivalent of a sense of touch.
