What we’re working on
Stanford Engineering has long been at the forefront of groundbreaking research, education and innovation. Through the development and application of engineering principles across disciplines, we are tackling the major challenges of the 21st century.
Equity & inclusion
Central to the School of Engineering’s mission is a commitment to increasing diversity by supporting individuals historically excluded in the field. We welcome a diverse group of faculty, students, and staff in an environment that is nurturing, welcoming and inclusive of individuals from a variety of backgrounds, perspectives and beliefs.
Degree & research opportunities
With opportunities for exceptional research and mentorship and an array of majors and classes, students have the opportunity to get the most out of an experience at Stanford. We offer several degree programs, as well as research opportunities with faculty in labs and in worldwide experiences in the field.
Stanford’s Department of Mechanical Engineering works in four major research areas: computational engineering, design, sustainability and human health. Our research philosophy is simple: Push the limits of the possible — the ultra-efficient and most sustainable, the fully autonomous and super-controlled, the bioinspired and maximally enduring.
