In an ever-evolving discipline like Mechanical Engineering, we must be ready for unexpected opportunities. Your generosity helps keep us on our toes, poised for progress.

Always at the forefront of innovation, Stanford Mechanical Engineering seeks to create pivotal solutions to important global problems and to educate leaders who will improve the world through the power of engineering principles, techniques, and systems.

Gifts to the Mechanical Engineering Department build vital resources that are ready wherever and whenever they are needed most. Such flexibility enables us to bring on promising new faculty, fund out-of-the-box teaching ideas, and take risks on new research concepts.

Leaning into the Future

What does a Stanford engineer do? How does a Stanford engineer change the world? 

Your contributions keep alive Stanford Engineering’s tradition of asking — and answering — questions in new ways. The long-term results are apparent in our ability to solve some of the most profound technical challenges of our day. As that ability continues to grow, so does the impact of your generosity.
