The Stanford School of Engineering has been at the forefront of innovation for nearly a century, turning big ideas into solutions that have improved people’s lives across the globe. Our mission is to seek solutions to important global problems and educate leaders who will make the world a better place by using the power of engineering principles, techniques and systems.
We believe it is essential to educate engineers who possess not only deep technical excellence but also the creativity, cultural awareness and entrepreneurial skills that come from exposure to the liberal arts, business, medicine and other disciplines that are an integral part of the Stanford experience.
Collaborating with colleagues across disciplines, Stanford engineers are finding better ways to create efficient energy sources, diagnose and treat diseases, ensure clean water, improve and invent electronic systems, develop environmentally benign industrial processes and enhance the overall quality of life.
