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.

Research News

In a video that elaborates on the theme of his Stanford Engineering EngX presentation, Stanford's Amin Arbabian, an assistant professor of electrical engineering, describes the radio that his team built to control the Internet of Things. The size of an ant, the radio is so energy efficient that it gathers all the power it needs from the same electromagnetic waves that carry signals to its receiving antenna.

Stanford team combines logic, memory to build a 'high-rise' chip

Stanford researchers are building layers of logic and memory into skyscraper chips that are smaller, faster, cheaper – and taller.

Stanford Engineering team combines logic, memory to build a 'high-rise' chip

For decades, the mantra of electronics has been smaller, faster, cheaper.

Today, Stanford engineers add a fourth word – taller.

At a conference in San Francisco, a Stanford team will reveal how to build high-rise chips that could leapfrog the performance of the single-story logic and memory chips on today's circuit cards.

Those circuit cards are like busy cities in which logic chips compute and memory chips store data. But when the computer gets busy, the wires connecting logic and memory can get jammed.
