Honors Cooperative Program

Industrial firms, government laboratories, and other organizations may participate in the Honors Cooperative Program (HCP), a program that permits qualified engineers, scientists, and technology professionals admitted to Stanford graduate degree programs to register for Stanford courses and obtain the degree on a part-time basis. In many areas of concentration, the master's degree can be obtained entirely online.

Through this program, many graduate courses offered by the School of Engineering on campus are made available through the Stanford Center for Professional Development (SCPD). SCPD delivers more than 250 courses a year on television and online. For HCP employees who are not part of a graduate degree program at Stanford, courses and certificates are also available through a non-degree option (NDO) and a non-credit professional education program. Non-credit short courses may be customized to meet a company's needs. For a full description of educational services provided by SCPD: see; call (650) 725-3000; fax (650) 725-2868; write Durand Building, Room 300, Stanford, CA 94305-4036; or email
