A class brings together students from across Stanford to create and build products for some of the world's poorest people.
During the last decade, 325 Stanford students have participated in Design for Extreme Affordability, a five-month-long course in which the students learn to design, prototype, and build products for some of the world's poorest people. The students have worked together in teams, traveled to 14 countries and worked on 80 projects in collaboration with 22 global partners.

This lecture highlights our future challenges for mobility. Professor Leohold, Executive Director of the Volkswagen Group, will present an exciting portfolio of automobile research topics ranging from powertrain technologies, vehicle concepts and opportunities for weight reduction, to automated driving as a future challenge. Each one of these subjects promises to re-invent the automobile in ways which are infinitely cleaner, safer and smarter than those we drive today.

The construction of the photovoltaic power industry since 2000 has required an enormous amount of energy, mostly from fossil fuels. The good news is that the clean electricity from all the installed solar panels has likely just surpassed the energy going into the industry's continued growth, Stanford researchers find.
The rapid growth of the solar power industry over the past decade may have exacerbated the global warming situation it was meant to soothe, simply because most of the energy used to manufacture the millions of solar panels came from burning fossil fuels. That irony, according to Stanford University researchers, is coming to an end.

Best finals project ever? Students in the Introduction to Mechatronics course build robots to do battle, sumo wrestler-style, to display their mastery of combining mechanical, electrical and computer engineering skills.
Two robots enter, only one leaves.
This was the basic premise that students in this year's ME 210, Introduction to Mechatronics, course faced for their final project: Build a robot from scratch and send it to battle.

The Global Climate and Energy Project will award $6.6 million for research that leads to cleaner fuels and lower greenhouse gas emissions.
New awards totaling $6.6 million from Stanford University’s Global Climate and Energy Project (GCEP) will advance research on clean-burning fuels and technologies for capturing carbon dioxide (CO2) emissions. The funding will be shared by seven research teams – six from Stanford and one from Carnegie Mellon University.
The seven awards bring the total number of GCEP-supported research programs to 104, with total funding of approximately $125 million since the project's launch in 2002.
