The goal of the undergraduate program in Mechanical Engineering is to provide students with a balance of intellectual and practical experiences that enable them to address a variety of societal needs.  Prospective undergraduates interested in studying engineering should apply to Stanford University through the Undergraduate Admission Office.

The Coterminal Degree Program allows undergraduates to study for a Master's Degree while completing their undergraduate degree.

Our Master of Science (MS) program is a terminal degree. To be eligible for admission to the department, a student must have a BS in engineering, physics or a comparable science program.

The Doctor of Philosophy (PhD) degree is intended primarily for students who desire a career in research, advanced development or teaching.

Financial aid is offered through fellowship awards, teaching or course assistantships, or loans through the university.
