Stanford Engineering

Our Mission

Management Science & Engineering’s mission is, through education and research, to advance the design, management, operation, and interaction of technological, economic, and social systems.

We support this mission through a diverse portfolio of world-class research activities, leveraging expertise across multiple disciplines and methodologies and through internationally renowned research centers.  Our engineering research strength is integrated with a broad based educational program at the undergraduate, masters, and doctoral levels: graduates of our program are not only trained as engineers, but also as future leaders in technology, policy, and industry.  Our research and teaching activities are complemented by an outreach program that encourages the transfer of ideas to the fertile environment of Silicon Valley and beyond.
