The Stanford Engineering Heroes program recognizes the achievements of Stanford engineers who have profoundly advanced the course of human, social and economic progress through engineering.

Because engineers often work behind the scenes, the Heroes program’s objective is to highlight the profound effect engineering has on our everyday lives and to inspire the next generation of engineers. More than 35 engineers — selected from alumni and former faculty by a panel of distinguished subject-matter experts and technology historians — have been named as Heroes since the program began in the year 2010-2011.
